* Alastor Moody, a veteran Auror in ''Literature/HarryPotter'', averts this like ''whoa''. His face is described as heavily scarred and misshapen, and he's missing a chunk of his nose, but his most shocking feature is his bulging, lopsided GlassEye. This actually works out quite well for him, since the prosthesis happens to be a MagicalEye with XRayVision and the ability to see in all directions.

His face is described as heavily scarred rough and misshapen, with heavy scarring and he's missing a big chunk of his nose, nose missing, but his most shocking feature is his bulging, lopsided GlassEye. This actually works out quite well for him, since the prosthesis happens to be a MagicalEye with XRayVision and the ability to see in all directions. They don't call him "Mad-Eye Moody" for nothing, you know.

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.
