This is part of the effort to fix Evil Eye (now Magical Eye).

The Evil Eye is a glare or look that can curse, inflict suffering, or bring bad luck to anyone who has the misfortune of receiving it. It's thought to be supernatural or magical in nature, so the person giving it could be a sorcerer or witch. The person who possesses the evil eye are usually characterized as being envious, hateful, or devious. In many countries and cultures, talismans, necklaces, bracelets, and charms are worn to dispel and protect from the evil eye. Some protective talismans are even believed to reflect the glare back to the person who inflicted it.

It's not to be confused with Magical Eye, when the eyes themselves have magical abilities.
