What Human Has The Largest Eyes In The World?

There is no definitive answer to this question as there is no accurate way to measure the size of someone's eyes. However, there are a few contenders for the title of 'human with largest eyes in the world'.

One possibility is Kim Goodman, a woman from Chicago who holds the Guinness World Record for 'largest eyeballs'. Goodman's eyeballs measure 28 millimeters in diameter and she has 20/15 vision (meaning she can see things at 20 feet that a person with normal vision could only see at 15 feet).

Another contender is Aimee Mullins, an American model, actress, and athlete who was born without shinbones. Mullins has prosthetic legs which allow her to walk and run like any other person, but she also has a pair of extra-long legs which give her an incredible height of 6'1". Mullins' eyes are also unusually large - they measure 24 millimeters in diameter.

And finally, there is Turence Rogers-Candyman, an American man whose eyes have been measured at 27 millimeters in diameter. Rogers-Candyman suffers from acromegaly - a condition caused by excess growth hormone production which results in enlarged body parts (including hands, feet, and face). He underwent surgery to remove his pituitary gland and stop the overproduction of growth hormone, but his eyes remain abnormally large.
