    Hi all. So I can't afford to risk losing my eyesight at all.

    I'm doing mostly Muay Thai but would like to try boxing also.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for gear for preventing contact to my eyes?

    Preferably, visibility is the second priority which is probably difficult.

    I'm looking at title's no contact facesaver here:

    So far that one looks the most promising. I don't mind a huge head I guess.. I'm not competing just having fun, but I'd like to at least learn something and be able to beat up my friends lol.

    I've seen winning gear being recommended a lot, but it looks like a punch directed at the eye will actually make contact with the eyes because the padding doesn't look like it creates quite enough distance to prevent the eyes from being contacted.

    Does anyone have input?
