In brief: Protect eyes

Blindness occurs from trauma (wear safety glasses, avoid situations if possible leading to trauma - fireworks, accidents), from intrinsic disease such as retinal detachments or optic nerve problems, and vascular disease like diabetes.
There are other causes, some inherited. Eat a good diet and have regular examinations by your ophthalmologist for the best protection.
