This happens a lot in .

Red Mage: Wait, you murdered your own blind brother?
Black Mage: It would have been cruel to let him live after what I did to his eyes.
This page in .

The Order of the Stick O-Chul broke out of his cage at an opportune moment and used one of the bars to take revenge on his torturer, Redcloak, by shoving it through his right eye. (Even better, had Redcloak not teleported out of the way first, it seems like ◊ O-Chul wasn't going to stop with the eyes...) This parallels Start of Darkness, in which Redcloak's younger brother lost his left eye when paladins attacked their village. While Redcloak can heal said wound, Xykon forbids him from doing so as a reminder of his failure to properly protect his Phylactery.
