As someone who works in Health, Safety and Quality:

Risk is calculated as consequence x likelihood.

The consequence of eye damage is catastrophic.

The consequence of getting hit in the mouth is major/moderate.

The consequence of getting a skate cut to the neck is catastrophic.

And so on and so on.

For I can't understand the acceptance of risk in regards to your eyes. This goes for wearing eye protection when doing work around the house.

Many a player has been hit in the mouth and gone on to live normal lives and playing as they had before.

Few have been hit in the eye without some sort of long term consequence often impacting their playing.

Ask Malhotra.
