Also in some cases cuts too close to the eye if they get too big can cause serious damage to your eyes.

That's why a cut on the forehead while it bleeds a lot won't stop a fight while a cut right over the eye even if it's not bleeding very much will because it put's your long term health at risk.

Because if there is a repeated blow to the area of the cut, there is a serious chance of infection and/or tissue damage that could develop into god knows what.

You can't be too careful with this and I'd never, ever get pissed off about a fight being stopped because of a cut. It's justified (take it from a former medic).
