Round eyes, tend to give startled expression Almost round eye Oval eye Large almond eye Small almond eye, tends to give more severe expression
Notes:  The eyes are very important to the Russian Blue and a significant number of points are allotted to them for color and shape.  Wedge shape affects the eye shape.  The broader the cheekbone plane, the rounder the eye.  The narrower wedge changes the shape to almond.  Really narrow wedges result in small eyes which may also be deep set or close set.  A large eye with good width between the eyes is the desired eye shape.
