I cringe every time I watch Callahan block shots. He is so reckless with his body on shot blocking which is what makes him so incredible at it. That being said, I've seen way too many players lose eyes doing it.
With the padding nowadays (see: KEVLAR shin pads and socks), there's not much danger in blocking a shot if you block it correctly. When you block it in with your face, you're in trouble.
