Perhaps this should be translated as "the eyes are the windows to the soul" since it's more of an expression than an factual statement.

Yes in English that is the expression that we have, but we are learning Portuguese so it is their expression that we need to learn.

We say that the eyes are the windows of the soul instead.

Eye - olho and face - rosto ou face

João Pedro, tecnicamente você está certo mas em inglês eles usariam uma outra frase para expressar o que expressamos em português. Não se pode traduzir as coisas literalmente.
