‘London–Paris’ eyes / ロン — パリの目 / Ron Pari no me is obscure but amusing Japanese slang (3Yen 2010-09-26) describing someone with eyes pointing in opposite directions.
Having crossed eyes and odd eye orientations is a common malady in Japan. It’s a “Push–Pull” situation.
Push—Bad vision is a genetic trait in Japanese caused by shallow eye sockets.
Pull—Japanese do not bother to correct is problem because: they think it’s cute, Japan medicine ignores it, correcting deformities has poor culture acceptance, Japanese Buddhism frowns on “cutting” the body, and Japanese people have high inertia to changing anything.
