* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}: Dae, MadScientist and head of the Organization's retrieval squad, still has a great round eyeball staring out of the left side of his face where he's lost all the flesh covering the bone and muscle, including the lips and eyelids.

The anti-EyeScream. When even though in all likelihood one's eyes would be harmed during a fight, or in a nasty accident etc., the eyes remain, remarkably, unharmed. This is seen often in works trying to avoid being {{Squick}}y. All the same, eye damage is rarely seen in modern works, as it has become something of a taboo. In a medium like Film or Television, it is also sometimes due to the difficulty in realistically portraying damage to the eye - makeup can create scars, but can't be applied directly to an eye. Also, as noted above, the expressiveness of the eyes can further emphasize the suffering and FacialHorror of the victim.

* The Literature/SherlockHolmes story which provides the page quote, "The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger", involves a woman whose face was swiped away by an African lion. It's lampshaded that her "living and beautiful brown eyes" further emphasize the FacialHorror.

* Double subverted in MatthewReilly's ''Scarecrow'' books, with regards to the eponymous character's EyeScream scars. Schofield's eyes were in fact badly damaged when the scars were inflicted, but his sight was saved and his eyes fully repaired. [[ScarsAreForever Nothing could be done about the scars themselves]], however, so Schofield wears reflective glasses almost all the time because people find the sight of them very unnerving.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': [[spoiler:Kanan Jarrus]] doesn't avoid being blinded by [[spoiler:Maul]] when the latter takes a swing at his face with a lightsaber, but because he managed to partially deflect the strike, the blow didn't go as deep as it might have (keep in mind that villain responsible intended it as a killing blow), leaving him with MilkyWhiteEyes and a scar going diagonally from above his left eye to below his right.

* Averted by Zuko in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has a scar running across most of one side of his face, from his nose to his ear. His eye is surrounded by damaged tissue and looks unharmed, but Zuko lacks peripheral vision and has damaged tear ducts under it.

* {{Averted}} in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} [=ThunderCats (2011)=]]]'' Panthro has a scar over his right eye, but the eye is milkier than his left, drawn matte and pupilless. WordOfGod is that he can still see, but [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/9608528030/why-did-you-guys-choose-to-make-pantho-blind-of-one-eye has glaucoma in that eye.]]



* Kanan Jarrus in WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels doesn't escape being blinded by [[spoiler: Darth Maul]]'s lightsaber, but whenever seen after that without his mask, rather than being burned out as you would expect from a weapon that can easily cut through steel, he just has MilkyWhiteEyes and the skin around them is a touch darker.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'', Master Shake has undergone nearly every single possible injury with intact eyes. The one time his eyes were damaged, he received prosthetic eyes. But in "Multiple Meat", he doesn't as he's too poor to afford them as Frylock left to start a better life.
