Why were Eve’s eyes not opened until after Adam ate?

To bring you up to speed before we discuss this, here is the Biblical text:

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. (Genesis 3:6–7)

What are they?  Well, HERE’S THE LINK
