The Japanese have a lot of superstition, and they have a lot to say about people's eyes. It's a common belief that the shape of someone's eyes can reveal something about their fate. This is called face reading and originated in Japan, but it's also a popular method of predicting things about people in Western cultures.
Several celebrities, such as John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, and Lady Di, have been said to have sanpaku eyes. This is a feature where the white of the eyes can be seen on the top or bottom of the iris even when they are looking straight ahead.
It can be present in both eyes or just one, and it is believed to be a normal characteristic of some individuals. However, it is also considered a curse for many individuals who are born with this characteristic.
There are a few different types of sanpaku eyes, and they can be divided into two categories: Yin and yang. Yin sanpaku eyes are those that have sclera (white) visible above the iris. This type of sanpaku is a sign that the person is accident-prone and prone to violent behavior.
Yin sanpaku is also associated with depression and mental illness. It can be found in alcoholics, substance abusers, and people who consume too much sugar.
Yin sanpaku is usually a bad sign, but it can be reversed by drinking water or eating better. It can also be caused by a medical condition, such as chronic inflammation, Addison's disease or hypothyroidism.
