We often take our eyes for granted, not protecting them enough in everyday situations. Sometimes just being aware of what could go wrong is enough to force you in to action.

Sport is one of the biggest causes of eye injuries, a squash ball for instance, is the perfect size to cause major damage to your eye, so is a champagne cork, so be extra careful even in those jolly situations.

Protective goggles are easily obtainable at your local hardware store, get yourself a pair for when you need to do some DIY around the house, especially if you’re using power tools like drills. Gardening is also another task that often poses a danger to our eyes, plus, you’ll be outdoors anyway, so keep those sunglasses on.

Swimming goggles are recommended, especially for contact lens wearers. You may also get these with prescription nowadays, so there’s no reason why not.
