You can conjecture a lot of personal things but the poetic symbolism is importantly a beacon to the ideal the same as it is powerfully romantic a window to a woman's beauty and heart. The other facial features vanish thus into insignificance. See Poe's use of stars in poetry in conjunction with eyes.
