Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions


blink the eyes, as shortsighted persons do: hence, to be shortsighted, metaph., 2 Peter 1:9.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

μυωπάζω; (μύωψ, and this from μύειν τούς ὠπας to shut the eyes); to see dimly, see only what is near: 2 Peter 1:9 (some (cf. R. V. marginal reading) would make it mean here closing the eyes; cf. our English blink). (Aristotle, problem. 31, 16, 25.)
