Hands and eyes; how concerned should the ref be?

Hmm, tricky one. I guess it depends on who the officials are. In recent games, one player was injured, apparently due to finger/s in the eye, and medical attention needed; no infringement. In another game, investigation showed finger over eye, no medical attention needed?, but it was a red card because of fingers in eye area.
Stark contrast in concern shown for hands and eyes. Maybe in the first instance there was more concern after the game to have a look at what happened and whether there had been fingers in the eye area?
