Photo Inspiration: Eyes

Another inspiration to me are eyes; I love eyes. They truly are the windows to the soul. They convey a array of emotions and come in a rainbow of colors. Whenever I'm doodling (usually in math class) I draw eyes everywherere. Big eyes, human eyes, anime eyes, etc. They are fascinating.
You know eyes have to be important because thats what people look at when they talk to each other instinctively. We don't stare at their ears, or hands, or hair; its always the eyes. Its always made me curious.
Anyway, here is my ode to eyes: 

  • Of your entire body, the muscles that move your eyes are the strongest.

  • The #1 cause for blindness in adults in the U.S. is diabetes.

  • The older you are, the less tears you produce.
  • Often in eye operations Sharks eyes are used because their corneas are very similar to that of the human eye. 

  • All babies have blue eyes that will later change into their normal eye color

  • Colored or patterned contacts are made and often used by actors and cosplayers. 

  • When you are lying you often look to the left, however when recalling a memory you will look towards the right. 

  • Sailors once thought that wearing a gold earring would improve their sight.

  • Most people will blink 12 times per minute.

  • Some Asian women have plastic surgery to give them wide, "European" eyes. 

  • Your eyes are the same size throughout your life even though your nose and ears never stop growing. 

  • When you see something you like, your pupils widen. In other words, there are a lot of wide pupil-ed girls watching Charlie McDonald
