Fascinating Facts About Eye Contact
At Florida Eye we may be all about eye health, but an article by Carol Kinsey Goman, Ph.D. (a published author on body language) is full of interesting information about the psychology of eye contact between everyone from loved ones and strangers to infants and work associates.

But too little, on the other hand, can make you appear uneasy, unprepared, and insincere. However, just the right amount of eye contact – the amount that produces a feeling of mutual likability and trustworthiness – should make for a comfortable productive atmosphere.
