All babies are born color blind. Lenses do not disappear behind the eye. In fact, we see everything upside down! If our eye was a camera, it would be 576 megapixels. Here are surprising scientific facts about eyes…
Experts shared interesting information about eyes that we do not know, and said that all babies are colorblind from birth and tears do not shed when they cry.
The eyes are the most important organ among the 5 senses. Thanks to our eyes, we see the objects around us in 3D. Thanks to the blind spots in both eyes, depth perception is created. In addition, there are some interesting unknown facts about our eyes.
A newborn baby does not shed tears
Experts have listed this interesting information that we will be surprised to hear about our eyes as follows:
All babies are born colorblind: Color perception of babies has been determined by various tests. At about 1 month of age, the brightness and intensity of colors can be perceived. A 3-month-old baby can see many primary colors, including red. Around the 4th month, color vision is fully developed.
When a newborn baby cries, he does not shed tears: Because tear production starts in the 1st month by the tear gland located in the outer upper part of the eye and its full production capacity is reached in the 3rd month.
Newborn babies can see objects about 20-40 cm away most clearly: The baby has the perception of light in the mother’s womb, and this is not considered full vision. A newborn baby can distinguish between light and dark at birth. Eye contact begins at 3 months of age, the baby’s visual coordination develops and can usually follow a moving object with their eyes. Eye muscles fully develop in the 6th month.
Lenses don’t get lost behind the eye
Contrary to urban legend, no contact lens can ‘get lost’ behind your eye due to the structure of your eyeball. The upper and lower parts of the eye are covered with a transparent structure called the conjunctiva, and there is no transition into the orbit here. It may have slipped under your top cover. You can check by turning the cover upside down. If the lens is not in your eye, we recommend looking for it on the floor or on your desk.
In fact, we see everything upside down!
We see everything upside down, but our main organ that turns the image up correctly is our brain. Light passes through the pupil and reaches the lens. It is refracted a second time in the lens and then passes through the vitreous body and falls to the visual point in the retina. Here, an inverted image occurs. The reverse image formed in the brain is perceived at the visual point and the brain and nerves are transferred to the visual center. In the visual center in the brain, the inverted image is perceived straight, and thus the vision event takes place.
If our eye was a camera, it would be 576 megapixels
• “The eye is the fastest muscle in your body. That’s why we say, “In the blink of an eye,” when something happens quickly.
• The human eye can work 100 percent at any given moment, without the need for rest.
• If the human eye were a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels.
A resolution of 576 megapixels means you need to place 576 million pixels in an area the size of your field of view to create a screen with an image so sharp and clear that you can’t distinguish individual pixels.
Our eye is more like a detective, collecting clues from your environment, then taking them to the brain to put the pieces together and create a complete picture. Yet when it comes to our daily visual experience, it’s too light to describe the eye in megapixels.”
We blink more than 4 million eyes a year
We blink about 4,200,000 times a year on average. In general, the average person blinks 10-12 times per minute, and the interval between two blinks varies between 2-10 seconds. Blinking is very important for the distribution of tears on the surface of the eye. Computer use, the number of clippings can be cut in half while reading.
