when I was little I used to be obsessively paranoid about something happening to my eyes. I don't know, I was just constantly running to the mirror to check that they were ok, and once I was pulling on something and my hand snapped back and hit my eye really hard, and I started crying because I got so scared. I was so sure that I'd look in the mirror and see my eye destroyed or something. It went away eventually. Afterwards, I remember one time i was just throwing a brown paper bag in the air (i have no idea why) and one time it came down and the corner hit my eye, and I thought i had gotten a paper cut for sure. It really hurt, and I think it did cut me, but I couldn't even see anything wrong with my eye. I think eyes are stronger than they seem.
One more example and I will shut up I promise...I remember one time I think I hugged someone in my family, and I noticed that a zipper on their jacket was very close to my eye. Then suddenly I realized that my eye really stung, and I think the zipper somehow cut it? When I looked in the mirror there was a tiny red line, but that was all. It's still there, actually. It looks like a vein but it's a tiny bit darker, it's sort of like a scar? So I really think our eyes are actually kinda strong.

It sounds really painful!  It seems normal to try to avoid such a scary concept.  You might even go blind!
Though, there's not a very high chance of it happening.  Better safe than sorry though, right?
