First season I was cycling "properly" I got fed up just with getting some small insect in my eye during the summer virtually every time I went for a ride so got some glasses..

Glad I did just to stop that and the discomfort every evening but I also had a large bug hit them at speed and wonder if it could have seriously damaged the eye if I hadn't been wearing them .... It left a mark which at 1st I thought was just bug guts stuck on the lens (part of it was) and left them to soak in water overnight so it'd come off easily and that's when I realised it wouldn't budge and was a sizable scratch on the lens.

I do however suffer from sweat / salt in the eyes on long rides in the summer ... really makes me feel tired / sore eyes in the evenings.
