    set eyes on

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    "I hope I may never set eyes on it again.”

    set eyes on = look at, see

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Hi, vil. I'm not a teacher.

    Yes, you are correct here! The speaker hopes that it will never come into his vision again.

    Re: set eyes on

    Could you say "it is my intention to never give it my attention nor set my focus on it again."
