There are many English words and expressions about eyes. You have probably heard of Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of the top football team Manchester United. He is famous for dressing down his players with an eyeball-to-eyeball tirade known as the hairdryer treatment. Eyeball-to-eyeball is an adjective and means face to face, usually for a serious or angry discussion. Fashion expert Blackwell proclaimed 1993 'a recipe for wardrobe ruin'. He based his observation partly on Whoopi Goldberg's Oscar eye-popper and Madonna's Girlie Tour jaw-dropper. Both eye-popper and jaw-dropper are commonly used in the United States. They refer to things that are extreme and shock people. In English we have the idiom eyes are popping. It means one is very surprised or excited by what he or she is looking at. The idiom eyes are out on stalks, comparing someone's eyes to a crab's, means the same thing.
