I started cycling to work about 12 months ago. Recently I had to get a surgeon to remove a piece of metal from my eye. Anyhow the only reason I can think of was it could have occurred on my bike. I noticed nothing. Now I am aware of it I seem to get a lot of grit in my eyes when cycling. In summer I can wear sun glasses in the morning but at night and in winter I don't need anything. Does anyone recommend wearing clear safety glasses? Do you think this happened when I was cycling or am I jumping to conclusions? I used to cycle heaps years ago and never had a problem. I have a road bike with flat bars.
