Hey Tom, I know a guy who was weed-wacking a couple of years ago with no eye protection.dpvoiceguy said:Well said, Greg. I work in a manufacturing environment, and because I have to wear safety glasses on the floor I now feel uncomfortable doing jobs around the house without them! Even mundane jobs like mowing the grass! I've seen too many "freak" accidents to take chances.
A piece of debris shot up from the ground and hit him square in the eyeball, slicing the lens of his eye.
When he went to the local hospital emergency room, he was transferred to a large hospital where an eye specialist had to do surgery on his eyeball...all because he didn't have eye protection on while weed-wacking.
