Can a flying nail during nail cutting make you blind in one eye?

I when I clipped the nail on my index finger, it flew straight up into the ceiling which scared the sh*t out of me. 

I was wondering, what if it accidently flew into one of my eyes? Would it blind an eye? 

Should I wear eye protection when cutting nails?

    Probably with extreme bad luck and extreme neglect, someone could go blind from a toenail hitting their eye.

    doubt it would blind you, you could get a corneal abrasion but the "blink" reflex is pretty strong. wear protection if you want but you could also clip with your hand downward as well
