Thread: Left Eye Got Smashed At!

Speed Recovery, Joanne! It's best that you go to an eye specialist for a checkup and leave no rooms for regret. Vision is one of the most important senses we got and it shouldn't be neglected. Forget the tourney and focus on getting back. Badminton will still be there for you when you recover.
Net players already have less time to react to shots in the front, having the racquet up and in front should be second nature for all players... especially those who like to play infront.

Sorry to learn of your recent accident to your eye. The impact must be quite great since you are standing so close to the net. I hope your opponent was smashing from further than the mid court.
Like many others, I think it is important for you to go for a check up. Cheung has given very good advice and being a 'medical' professional, he should know better. The eye is precious, please promise to see a specialist.
Your competition is today. I think since your eye still hurts and you can't really stand the light, forgo your contest today for there will be many more to come.
As advised by viver, please remember to protect your face with your racquet when you're close to the net and duck quickly.
Hope you'll recover soon and enjoy your training.

Wow, been so busy lately no time to come on here.
Anyway, would like to say that my eyes are much much much better, today my left eye is no longer red, it's the normal colour, I rested it for 2 days, wearing spectacles. The whitish cloud over my eye was only for about 1-2 hours, my vision was clear again after that. Sure, my eye was red over the weekend and was teary, but by Sunday night it was much better, I wore my contacts to the competition today and no problem. Maybe the girl's smash wasn't that strong after all.
The main reason why I wear contact lens is because I find spectacles get in the way of my game. Besides, I usually play singles, this incident just reminded me why I don't really like doubles.
Haven, it's an inter-school competition, also known as MSSD. Check out the thread I started under Inter-School Competition.

Glad things turn out alright for you. But still, just to be sure... have it checked. Was the impact right into the eye or near the eye?

Hmm... nearer to the end of the eye. I doubt my parents will bring me to an eye doctor anyway if they see my eyes are okay already.

Damn! It must have been a hard smash from far or kill from mid court to affect your eye like that. Eyes are really tricky things though... they might be fine now, but a few years down the road might be a different matter, it's best to be safe.

Sorry to catch this thread late. Myself was dying in my Vancouver torture sessions.
It's good to know that ur eye seems recovered well. However, if u don't feel comfortable somehow, still better to let it checked. Sometimes, with proper instructions and procedures from the doctor, injuries could be treated more properly, which means better recovery.

My partner didn't clear the shuttle right the base line you see, we were just practising not that serious. Oh well, that's what I thought anyway. Next thing and my eye got it.
My eyes are back to normal, as comfortable with contacts as ever, not even red anymore. Thanks for your concern though

I was hit twice on one night last year on the left eye. My glasses broke.

Too bad she's married to him...

Good thing you closed your eyes... but kinda dangerous if it DID go in your eyes, your eyes might have bled... yikes. Wearing glasses are dangerous too, without them it's dangerous too. What's the solution? Protect your face at all times? Now whenever I'm in front of the net and the opponent is going to smash, I get ready to duck. What else can I do? When my eye got smashed at it was kinda frightening you know.

Hi, I am new
Hello. Just discovered this site whilst shopping for a new racket. I am from Malaysia but currently working in UK.
My name is Albert and I am a badminton fanatic
Anyways, just wanted to say hi and no better way than to describe what happened on one fateful day:
I was playing with a beginner and as I was backing up to get an overhead shot on my side of the court, my partner smashed from behind and his racket hit my face from behind. I was wearing those plastic specs and they snapped, and the frame cut into my T-zone, in between my eyes. I still have an inch scar to show for it! was bleeding over the court!
that was the worse badminton accident i have seen (been in)...sigh... lesson learnt.
and oh...forgot to mention...broke his new racket on impact as well. and my friends are still jokingly say that i should pay him back for his racket

If u keep your racquet up, you will be able to take advantage
of the situation should it arise... you'll be able to push/drive
back the shuttle to anywhere in the court if your racquet is
ready Of course, if u get hit by a racquet like Albert, it'd

agreed Haven. It is good practice to keep your racket head up while in front of the net.
But how do you defend against attacks from the back?!

Trust your partner and don't turn your head.
