Default Eyeball Violence

What is it with the crazy Italians and eyeball assault? Giallo is full of twisted ways of piercing them an Fulci defined the eyeball kill in Zombi 2, when that women got a splinter rammed into her socket. I've read somewhere that Giallo has an obsession with leering voyeurism and that the eye attack is linked to that but I think it's just that it's the universal way of creating queasiness in an audience. Everyone is scared of blindless and brain injury so shoving a blade in there really freaks everyone out...
