0008086: Eyeballs heal, so do zombies, healing in general.
I had a dwarf whose eye was "ripped to shreds". I unfortunately don't have a one eyed dwarf as their eye seems to have healed. I have heard the same about throats.
Zombies additionally scar over and heal rather than remaining damaged.
cut an eye, wait.
No tags attached.

Eye healing is intentional for now -- see 0001292:0027890 where Toady says they're not meant to be gouged out, and this post where he talks about eyes scarring over: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=141736.msg5539547#msg5539547 [^] If eye injuries aren't causing blindness, please PM a manager on the forums to reopen 0001297.

Whether zombies should heal is in Suggestions territory.

The eye went from it's pulped state to fine. Not blue, or scarred or showing residual damage in any way.
I did some more testing in the arena, torn and otherwise damaged eyes scar normally, but pulped eyes heal fully.

That's covered by 0006854.
