Eyes cannot see what mind doesn't know

Had I not been a medical student, I wouldn't have seen this picture the way I see it now, or I might just be looking at the aimless gaze of those eyes in some silent space in the unrevealing sky as some literary interpretation.

But what I see now are the redness in the sclera, probable opacities visible in the cornea, or the dilated pupil maybe? (coz the iris couldn't be appreciated clearly), absence of eyelashes or even more...

I painted it way before I joined the medical field. But it strikes me sometimes, how things can change the perception of people and these perceptions being totally unrelated to each other.
