Per the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s journal, Ophthalmology, people make judgements of others’ age based almost solely on their eyes and the skin around them. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and it seems that people can tell just how old your soul might be just by looking at them.
The Unique Study
Researcher Huy Tu Nguyen, MD, who works with the Harvard Department of Ophthalmology, along with his colleagues, studied 47 younger adults who were asked to look at and analyze the faces of older adults on a computer screen. These individuals were fitted with special eye-tracking cameras that allowed the researchers to better understand the parts of the faces the individuals looked at the longest.
