Keeping this in consideration, should you keep your eye on the ball in tennis?
Should you try and watch the ball at contact point? You can but it is not necessary. The tennis ball is only on your racket strings for 1 – 5 milliseconds. It is impossible for the human eye to see this happen so there is not real benefit.
Similarly one may ask, can a tennis ball give you a black eye?
Blunt injuries, often caused by tennis balls, racquets, fists or elbows, can sometimes cause a black eye or hyphema (bleeding in front of the eye). More serious blunt injuries often break bones near the eye, and may sometimes seriously damage important eye structures and/or lead to vision loss.
Can eye injury heal on its own?
A minor scratch should heal on its own in 1 to 3 days. More severe abrasions may take longer. While your eye heals: Don’t rub your eye.
We recommend seeking immediate medical attention anytime you experience swelling, redness, or pain in your eye, especially if it occurs after an injury or having a foreign object or chemical in your eye. When left untreated, these injuries can damage your eye even more, leading to partial and/or permanent blindness.
