Growing up, I didn't have to worry too much about any of the Three Stooges routines. I was glad to wear glasses, which deterred much of the eye-poking hi jinks that classmates might have pulled on me. But as I grew older and got contacts instead? I nyucked a little less and threw up a stink-palm a little more.
That being said, I know the best way to prevent blindness now:
1) Request this
2) Wear over your eyes like Geordi LaForge's VISOR
3) Thwart any Stooge-like attacks
The downside is that I might need to teach my cats how to guide me around everywhere, but I'm sure I could manage…
