In brief: Alertness, glasses
Most eye injuries in the garden are from branches striking the unprotected eye.
So wear safety glasses and be alert. Also take caution around things like lawn mowers and power equipment which may launch something towards your eye. Note also that someone near you could be affected by debris set flying by a lawnmower or cutting machinery like power saws.
