In the sentence 'tu as vu quelqu'un pour les yeux' and the translation

'.......about your eyes', should it be 'with your eyes' and therefore 'avec les yeux?'

Bonjour encore, If I have the correct sense of the French phrase in question, this possibly is a better syntax: Avez-vous vu quelqu'un concernant vos yeux ? I understand the context to be that the speaker is asking if the person has seen a doctor, probably because he/she is having a problem with their eyes. The obvious phrasing that you refer to has to do with the eyes as one of the senses, i.e. seeing. I don't think that is what the phrase intends. Bonne chance,

Bonjour Susan !

Ron is correct: here the sentence means "have you seen someone (a doctor) about your eyes [because there's an issue]?".

I've decided to add context to the example to remove any confusion :)

Tu as vu quelqu'un pour ton problème à l'œil ?
Did you see anyone/someone about your eye problem?
À bientôt !
