    What about the korean player who vsd taufik in the 2004 olympic singles final??>

    I got into two eye injuries in two consecutive days playing.
    First on my left eye and then on my right eye. Both times also its a light tap, so the injury is not as severe but it really got me scared.

    Shuttle was lobbed back to our side, so I moved to front of court and partner moved to the back. Somehow the opponent also moved to the front of court waiting for my weaker partner to make and error and drop the shuttle in front.

    Is my partner to blame for dropping the shuttle right in front of the net even when the opponent is also right in front waiting to tap?

    Is it my opponent's fault for taking advantage of my (weaker) partner who is always forced to drop because he can't reach the shuttle fast enough to lob or smash back?

    Is it my fault to go in front of the net even when I realized my partner is weaker?

    I am thanking god I'm not blinded. But I'm not taking chances anymore. I am never going in front of the net when partnering a weaker partner. I am always keeping the racquet near my face to block the shuttle in case...well **** happens.

    Get one of those goggles that Edgar Davids always wear onto the football pitch. Very protective!

    Like you said **** happens, even the best of players have the occasional mishits, so instead of playing the blaming game, i think the best is to wear a pair of protective goggles or a pair of glasses will do.

    how about putting the racket in front of your face when you are at the front? that way since it is already high, any loose net shots can also be killed.

    Wear normal glasses at your own risk, the lens can shoot back into your eye on impact, happened to an unlucky friend of mine, his eye is fine now. How this happen: he is a begginer at badminton and turned around to watch his partner.....

    All players should get into good habits for protecting their eyes:

    • Never look back when your partner is about to hit the shuttle.
    • Protect yourself at the net. If your opponent is about to kill the shuttle, turn away, cover your eyes with your hand or racket, or duck your head into the net (if you're really close).
    • If your partner lifts the shuttle, get back into a defensive position. If you don't have time, give up on the rally and just protect your eyes.


    If you can learn to do those things, you should be safe from getting blinded. If not, you need to wear non-shatter eye protection.

    Never wear ordinary glasses, as these increase the chances of a serious eye injury: the lenses are larger and more prominent than your eyes, so the probability of a hit goes up; and they may shatter, sending glass shards into your eye.

    Survival Instincts makes me run off the court when someone does a 1/4 court lift that is almost impossible to return when smashed

    Most racketball/squash/badminton pro shops will carry them. Most good general sporting goods stores will also have them.
