Sanpaku - What Is It And How Does It Affect Your Life?

1KShares

Since the whites of the eye occupy three of the four quadrants, the term sanpaku literally translates to "three whites." Sanpaku occurs when the white of someone's eye is seen above or below their iris. That's not really noteworthy, and in most cases you wouldn't even notice it. Yet in Japanese folklore, sanpaku is seen as a potential portent of one's future.

This superstition gained a lot of traction in the West in the 1960s, when Japanese novelist George Osawa used the eyes of prominent Americans to prophesy their deaths (including Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy). Since then, many have wondered whether and how sanpaku influences one's destiny.

If you believe the superstition, it makes a difference which way the whites of your eyes are facing. The world is out to get you if you can see white underneath your lower lashes. It is believed that being in this state puts you in imminent danger from the outside world.

What Is Difference Between Sanpaku And Typical Eyes?

It's likely that your pupil and iris will be in the center of your field of vision, with your whites (sclera) on each side, when you gaze at your own eyes in a mirror or reflection. When you "roll" your eyes up or down, or shift the direction you're looking in, the iris and pupil move to accommodate the new focal point. Of course, this is the standard appearance of human eyes.

Sanpaku eyes are those in which the sclera is easier to see. In certain cases, this might cause an increased amount of white to show outside of the iris. Japanese facial reading is where the phrase sanpaku eyes originated. Facial analysis is a subset of physiognomy. The art of attributing an individual's traits or characteristics to their physical appearance is known as physiognomy. It is most often used in reference to facial characteristics.

The phrase "scleral show" is often used to describe sanpaku eyes in Western medicine. Both "Sanpaku eyes" and "scleral show" refer to the same visual characteristic of the eye. However, their interpretations change depending on the surrounding content.

Scleral show indicates a natural eye look or may be the result of age, sickness, injury, or a problem after blepharoplasty, while sanpaku eyes are often related with Japanese face reading or psychological meanings.
