Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Elves have elvish eyes. They are imbued with special powers.
Prophet of Loss: wholedamnshow: He's assuming elf eyes work the same as human eyes.If you had RTFA, you would know it has to do with the physical nature of light.

PabloHosehead: Okay, first of all...elves weren't magical creatures. They were the firstborn of Iluvatar, and were gifted with having a more fundamental connection with the "stuff" of Middle-Earth. This manifested itself in many ways, like their immortality (except through violence or "giving up"), the ability to walk on snow, their ability to go without what we'd call sleep, and through their keener eyesight (both at distance and in the dark). And in what we'd refer to as "magic"...but what was really just an ability to mold matter and energy through non-mechanical means.
