On 1/30/2017, I was riding my bike in the park with my daughter. For reasons that are still sketchy to me, somehow our bikes collided and I fell head-first into rocks. While I sustained bruising and cuts all around where the edge of the frame ended, my eye was unharmed. You can see how my glasses were pushed up a little on impact, but not so far up that they weren’t still covering my eye. I don’t know if the cuts are from the frame or from the rocks I fell into, but in either case, my eye was protected.
I couldn’t get a really clear picture of the glasses due to reflection, but I’ve attached the best picture I could get. The frame had a couple small pieces knocked out of it, and the lens had a deep gash on the front side…the gash was deep enough to create a ridge on the backside of the lens.
Based on the location and depth of the lens gash, there is no doubt if I had not been wearing my safety glasses, or worse…had been wearing non-safety glasses, I would not have a right eye. K.J.
