This may not be very accurate, since it's done totally from guess-work, but what do you think? Is there anything you would change?

Now theres a subject i've never given much thought to in my 65 years, a global guestimate of eye sizes from around the world...Not sure what to do with this new found information,.
Trimac20 how about some research on more interesting parts of the body..

The variation of eye size among developmentally normal adult humans is less than 2 mm in diameter from the largest examples to the smallest example iirc. I don't think there's even a connection between eye size and ethnicity, other than maybe a general tendency of people from some groups to be overall larger or smaller than others, so your map seems pretty absurd to me.

So you think Italians are as likely to have epicanthic folds as Chinese people are? Surely an example of anti-intellectual politically correct thinking. BTW I think he means size of the part of the eye that is visible, not the eyeball itself.

I'm glad that Trimac20 said at his link that he has no racist agenda, because of course such is contemptible.

But he might be onto something with his graph. Wikipedia reports the plica semilunaris (in the corner of your eye), which helps with tear drainage and maximizes eyeball movement, is larger in indigenous folks from Africa and Australia, and that would correlate with Trimac's chart, which, if at all valid, proves that Trimac is a way more detailed observer of the human face than anyone I know

Whoever reads this must take into account that *My Map*,
as mentioned in the OP's first post, is not *His Map* !!
It was developed by somebody else, Trimac *found it* and shared it with this forum.

I often wonder, why certain people almost become obsessed with just *one thing*.
Personally, I have no idea why people eyes are differently looking, who cares,
but I will not make people stop doing, what they are doing.
Just my opinion that certain *obsessions* are kind of weird, to say the least.

I have to admit, Trimac often *finds* some interesting *facts* !!

So ... , in answer to:
1 - This may not be very accurate,
2 - since it's done totally from guess-work,
3 - but what do you think?
4 - Is there anything you would change?>>>

1 - May not be *very* accurate. What does that really mean ?
2 - It is done from *guess work*,
--- so now guess work becomes worthy to publish ?
--- Hmmm ... , I guess so !
3 - *What do I think* ? -- I think, it is interesting.
4 - Nothing. because, who would really be able to get *the facts* (look up what *fact* really means)

LBNL, I have been *following* Trimac's posts, and I do that since , I read his bio on Facebook.
The way he describes himself is a bit funny, and I like people who can look at themselves the way he does.

Ok, this is a weird topic.

I would've though that americans would've had the same size as eyes as us. I mean you can't really tell the difference in looks between Americans and British people.

I don't know what size of eyes that I have because I don't really compare eye sizes but I suspect my eyes are medium sized.

I think for North & South America it's about Native American eye sizes

Yes I was actually referring to Native Americans...also for Australia the aborigines.

Haven't really thought much of the variation of human eye sizes, but the map seems to be fairly accurate to how people of different origins look.
