This is the closest I've ever come to losing an eye. I was edging my lawn in the front yard and weed eater caught a rock or something and it flew through my glasses and embedded a piece of glass in my eye lid. Another half-inch or less toward my eyeball and glass would have seriously injured my eyeball. I'm sitting her now with a chunk of gauze taped over a quarter-inch slice. I'm trying to decide if I need stitches or not. I'd rather not have to deal with it, but it may be necessary. I'm just glad I had on my sun glasses. Next time I will wear proper safety glasses. My lawn looks great though.
