* In the Creator/DaleBrown novel ''Act of War'', [[spoiler: Zakharov]] gets shot in the eye, but his escape vehicle gets away before the kill can be confirmed. The characters are GenreSavvy enough not to count him out yet, and indeed he does return in ''Edge of Battle''.

* [[spoiler: Vice's little sister]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' gets shot in the eye by an energy bullet [[spoiler:he fired]]. She survived since it only deals [[StunGuns Magical Damage]] but she was still blinded in that eye. She ends up getting a replacement which is a slightly different colour.

* Creator/OrsonScottCard has used this a couple of times. In both ''[[Literature/EndersGame Shadow Of The Hegemon]]'' and ''Literature/{{Empire}}'', a major character is killed with a point blank .22 shot to the eye. In both cases, it's because the killer needs to smuggle the weapon into a secure area. A .22 handgun is small and light, but doesn't have much penetration--if a head shot doesn't go through the eye socket, it's pretty likely to just bounce off the skull.
