"Eye to Eye" is a classic (and much copied) Charles Gauci effect that has nothing to do with needles, or geek magic in general.

Dear Mr Dyment
Sorry i thought it was something to do with placeing a needle in one eye haveing you or the spec feel it under the skin of your cheek am i wrong?
its because i do something where i place a needle through my cheek and drag it down through the bottom of my jaw.
Is it some thing to do with the very old yogi/fakir principal of the grain of rice or whatever buy sniffing and pulling it out of your eye.
is that correct? any help in this area?
All the best

They're two entirely different things. The principle of the grain of rice in the compartment at the inner corner of the eye has nothing to do with Gauci's effect.

And I don't want to read anything on here about sticking a needle into yourself! Kids read this.

I don't know of any effects where you push a needle through your eye, and I don't want any such effects discussed here, so I'm locking this thread.
