Only thing I could think of is use a cricle/octopus hook. But the only styles it lends towards are wacky and drop shot.
I use 3/0 circle hooks 90% of the time and I have never hooked one in the eye. On some smaller bass, the hook has come close to the eye socket, but they were all hooked around the corner of the mouth.

cut the hook and avoid further trauma to the fish, it sucks doing it on tungsten weighted hooks but oh well. and use this for gut hooked fish
it flips the hook 180 and makes it easy to get out.
