Yes, I've witnessed or taken part in an eye injury incident. Just recently, my wife and I were practicing some techniques. I was performing Katatekosatori Kokyunage (very similar to most Iriminage techniques) and while I was maintaining control of my wife's head and pivoting, I accidentally brought my "free" hand a little too close to her face and I ever so lightly (a love tap really) hit her just above her left eye. She had a bruised eye for about a week. I felt really bad, but I figure that we are even now because about a week earlier she was performing a Sankyo pin on me that led to some really bad bruises on the tricep portion of my right arm. We are usually very careful during practice and very seldom get injuries (knock on wood), so the recent injuries were the first ones in a very long time.
