eye protection thoughts
Last week during practice I got hit in the with the edge of a glove. No permanent damage and besides a swollen eye and some discomfort, it was no big deal.
This got me thinking... A couple of times fighters have taken some severe eye damage. So how to provide better protection?
Glasses are obviously out of the question, but what about contacts? I don't wear contacts, so I don't know what material they're made off, but is it even reasonable to think if fighters wear contacts it would provide at least a little protection to their cornea?
Not sure how it would hold up when there's an eye poke (would it cause even more damage)?
What do you guys think?
