There has been reluctance, unless forced by rules/regulations, to wear eye protection playing squash.  Considering the amount of games played throughout the world, the incidence of irrepairable damage caused by the ball or racket are minimal, BUT avoidable.

Don't be tempted to do anything if you get hit in the eye except:

    •  Cover the eye with a patch, making sure no pressure is applied to the eye.

    •  Seek immediate medical attention.

According to my optician in the 1980s in the UK squash accounted for more eye injuries than industry, which is quite a scary thought, I entirely agree with Rita, if you injure your eye go and see a doctor,even if it means a trip to casualty.  To put eye injuries in context i am currently studying my module on blood and we are told there are only 2 surgeries when you platelet count must be above 80 brain surgery and eye surgery beacuse in either of them even 1ml of blood can cause irreperable damage so think what a squash ball with the velocity of (so i am told) up to a .22 rifle bullet can do!
