“Adverse” for “averse” is already on our eggcorn list, but “advert’ for “avert” is a bit different and, I think, hasn’t been considered on this site. Googling “advert your eyes” yielded about 400 unique non-pun hits. I doubt there’s the meaning connection necessary to call it an eggcorn, so I’m mentioning it as a slip or reshaping instead.
