Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issue?

1. Are these sentences:

a) "There are people who are sore for my eyes."

b) "I see you seek a doctor"

2. Is the verb 'to seek' considered formal?

Update:

Sorry, that should read:

"I think you should seek a doctor."

    1. a) Should be written like this: There are people who are a sight for sore eyes.

    b) Should be written like this: I see that you are consulting a doctor.

    2. The verb 'to seek' is certainly considered to be fairly formal, and would not normally be used in everyday speech.

    1. a) "There are people who are sore for my eyes." No-one would say that. It makes no sense at all. Do you mean "I can't stand the sight of some people."?

    b) "I see you seek a doctor." No-one would say that. Maybe "I see you're looking for a doctor."

    2. Is the verb 'to seek' considered formal? Yes, it generally is.
