Have you ever wondered what your eyes reveal about you? We see it all the time. Whether it's from supermodel and America's Next Top Model host, Tyra Banks telling potential models to "smile with their eyes," essentuated eye makeup from our favorite stars hitting the red carpet or simple images of breathtaking eyes in style guides and magazines.
What you may not know is that some people consider eyes as a "window to the soul" and your eyes indicate interesting things like the condition of your health and other factors that affect your body.
According to the author of BodyMind, Ken Dychtwald, your eyes indicate the level of health or disease for your entire being. They truly are "windows to the soul" in the sense that many tensions in the facial muscles and surrounding organs, including those from the brain, accumulate in around the eye or eye sockets, according to Dychtwald's book.
Here's some interesting facts from Cohen's Fashion Optical of Harlem about different variations of the human eyes:
Large, round eyes suggest a warm, open and caring personality. It's as if the person behind them is gently reaching out to the world through the eyes.
Bulging eyes are reaching out to the world in an intense and forceful way, often with the result of making people feel uncomfortable in the person's presence.
Deep-set eyes indicate that the person has been living a life of repression. Unexpressed feelings have caused the eyes to retreat further into the skull.

The hardness or softness of a person's eyes are indicative of their way of interacting with the world. A person with a hard expression in the eyes seeks to control the world, while a person with soft eyes is more easygoing and receptive. Nearsightedness and farsightedness relate to a person's level of introversion or extroversion. Nearsighted people tend to focus inward, and farsighted people tend to project their attention away from themselves.
