Has anyone ever got hit in the eye when breaking a string? If so, do you have a glass eye now or something?

i'm glad the only times i have been hit with a string is when i had glasses, otherwise I'm pretty sure I would be blind.
#5
When I saw the title I immediately assumed it was another person coming to the Pit for medical advice - and then I pictured someone bleeding from the eye and typing like the wind. "RESPOND, DAMMIT! I THINK I'M LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS!"

i got the end of a string pinged into my eye, but it just stung for a while. I didn't find it afterwards either.
#7
that's like my worst fear. that, and when i'm changing a string i'm afraid i'm not gonna be paying attention and i'm gonna poke myself in the eye with the end of a thinnger string.
#8
a string wiped my arm once. Im glad i wasn't playing naked because it was a rusty string and it rapped around my fingers....you get the idea.

The string wrapped round one of my nuts looks like its about to break off any second. I fear for my life whenever I play my guitar.
#14
just a few days ago i was changing my strings. I had them all one and i tuned them all except for the high E It took forever to get in tune and I was really scared. I actually hid behind the body of my guitar and started tuning it lol. Yes I really did do that. That thing scares me.

I broke the high E on a nylon acoutsic one, like years back, i was kind of freaked by it for a while but now i sometimes play little dare contests with myself when tuning seeing how many semitones i can bend the pitch by on the 12th fret
fear solved =)

Had to pull it out with tweezers took 5 min cause' the ben't part wouldn't budge.

I thought I settled any chance of eye-injury by changing strings while wearing spectacles.

Ironically, one day, I was tremolo picking the low E string, it snapped, and sliced my face half open.
#22
i cut my lip with an A string once. i always turn my head away when i am tightening up new strings/cutting old ones.
#23
personally i hate it more when the high E stabs into one of my fingers, i mean you can play guitar blind but if your finger hurts it sure slows progress

Well, no, but I've gotten hit in the forehead the first time my dad tuned my guitar instead of me.

Shows how much he knows about guitars (and close-range no-scope sniping)...

I don't think that it would be THAT bad. The eye is more strong that it seems. A guy actually made a TATTOO in his eye.
But just in case, I always wear sunglasses when I change my strings.
