What dinosaur had the biggest eyes?

The long-skulled Giganotosaurus, native to South America, lived during the Mesozoic Era (97 million years ago), while the massive, heavy-headed T. Rex, native to North America, lived during the Maastrichtian age of the upper Cretaceous Period (67 to 65.5 million years ago).

Is Giganotosaurus stronger than Spinosaurus?
