Yes, I think a change would be good. I had drafted an eye icon myself some time ago but didn't think the look matched the rest of the icon set and temporarily set my project aside. Perhaps we can approach the icon set designer to see if he would be interested in adding something like the open/closed eye? They eye seems the most logical choice to me.
