How do you make a blank stare even blanker? Have the character's eyes face slightly (or even more than slightly) ''away'' from each other -- reverse cross-eyes, if you will. It's usually used to make the character look unintelligent or dumbfounded, causing it to become known as "derp eyes" in some Internet circles. In [[TvTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary real world English]] this is called "wall-eye" or "squint", and in medical jargon "exotropia".

* An interesting case of this trope and MethodActing on the part of the actor for Pennywise the Dancing Clown in ''Film/It2017''; initially the director wanted to achieve this effect through CGI techniques, but Bill Skårsgard told him that he could actually unfocus his eyes to achieve the desired effect. Thus, Pennywise appears wall-eyed in most scenes that he's in that aren't action heavy, [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou with most of said scenes shot so that one eye is pointed directly at the camera.]]

* Michelangelo's ''David'', believe it or not. Deliberate, because Michelangelo knew both eyes couldn't be viewed at once, and made each profile fill different artistic roles.
