Interesting eyes

Here's an article from the New England Journal of Medicine about a gentleman who has an interesting eye condition. The story describes his eyes as looking like keyholes and says the unusual appearance is a result of abnormal closure of the optic fissure, something that occurs when a fetus is about five weeks developed.

It hasn't caused the patient any trouble. But I wonder if it's brought him anything special. Surely those eyes must have intrigued people who met him and maybe stopped long enough to enjoy his special appearance and have a chat. The eyes are the window to the soul, right? His also have a lock, which might make him seem a little unattainable. Or as Cam says, does his wife have key eyes? It might make finding your soul mate a lot easier. All kinds of interesting story ideas spring to mind.
