Honestly, I've long toyed with the idea that elf "eyes" are just eye-spots, developed solely so that when dealing with non-Aldryami the meat-sacks don't freak out. Elfsense and detecting chemical (including scent) cues at high enough levels of sensitivity would do everything they need in terms of perception, and c'mon, everyone knows plants can't see. It would be problematic with mostali, who are difficult for aldryami to perceive, and when they finally can be perceived "they all look alike".
