Just Close your eyes in both situations to fix the problem.

A: Close your eyes during the wheelie and all the cars vanish, which makes them no longer a problem (in your eyes of course)

B: Close your eyes and the wind will not hit them, therefore no water in eyes.

Or you could be lame and practice wheelies in a safe environment and maybe wear a helmet to help with those eyes but how much fun would that be.

make sure you wear the proper gear while wheeiling like that. Flip flops, shorts, and a wife beater.
