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.
I should learn this.Few days ago some stranger invite me to play double with them during Im playing with my bro.I dont trust my partner so I turn back to see where will he hit.But unfortunately he hit my eye.I cant see clearly and my eye that injured tear like crying(but just eye that injured).It take almost 1 set for me to see clearly back.
