If you deliberately eye gouge someone in a fight, you better hope you have the upper hand otherwise there will just be a pissed off opponent who will greatly escalate the amount of damage he will want to inflict to you.
When I get back in the gym, I will, and damn I'll need it. I'm English, and I sweat if I even think of moving around. The pony tail doesn't help (damn hippie looking toolbag that I am).

I wear glasses, and I've been dinged in the lens a good few times, mostly through my own clumsiness. Still have vision, incredibly. I didn't get to be clumsyninja via ninjerism.
My eye just seems to close at the right time. This last one I diddn't ever see coming. I ate it from behind somehow.

As you see sorta an eye gouge looks like an eye gouge as well. So can be used as defence against assult in court
What was that Bas Rutten quote - "never escalate the level of violence in a fight you are losing"? Or somesuch.

Truely award worthy! I'm not allowed to give you more rep, so a +1 will have to do.

No matter if you trained 999 self-defense Krav Maga, Systema, whatever drills until they are a reflex. Being an actually skillful fighter doing hard sparring while being willing to kick balls and bite ears will in the end be better than the former option.
No, because in today's society, you will go to jail. Self defense doesn't justify the d3adly. In this day of magistrate hearings, and in this litigious society, having poked the guys eye in, is not going to earn any sympathy from a magistrate, judge, jury, DA, ADA, or anyone.

I don't know if there's an assault with intent to maim charge here, but I wouldn't be surprised. Society frowns on disfiguring someone, if you're both civilians.
Too many people misunderstand "self defense". You're only allowed to use the same amount of force used against you. Atleast Oklahoma Law says that anyway.

If someone shoots at me, then any method however deadly is okay.
No, you are allowed to use the amount of force necessary to protect yourself without overdoing it. If you are trying to knock me out, knocking you out is acceptable. If you just got mad and swung at me without a real intent of causing a big warm to me, knocking you out is not acceptable.

The amount of force you can use is dependent of the situation, and not of how much force is used against me, because if this were the case I would have to wait until you stabbed me to stab you back.
Anyway, from eye gouging to just poking you can control the amount of damage you do to the opponent and should not overdo it if it is not necessary.
