Actually I doubt that deer (or other potential prey) pay any attention to the
eyes, or to carnivore, herbivore distinctions. The world is divided into
things that eat me and things that do not. The detection is usually by smell
or sound, sight is a last
stage defense. predators that are much to small to be harmful are ignored,
whatever their vision.
