If you have blue eyes you are related to Nicole Kidman!
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have found that everyone with blue eyes descended from the same single person about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago! They believe that this individual was the first person with the genetic mutation that prevented him from making melanin, the pigment that makes eyes brown, in his eyes. They were able to trace this gene to the region around the Black Sea.

How far can the human eye see?
It depends on atmospheric conditions, since air itself and things in the air block and scatter some of the light passing through. If you look horizontally you can't see as far as if you look vertically because there is more atmosphere in the horizontal direction. In very clean air, horizontal visibility is about 50 miles. More typical visibility levels are 2 to 20 miles. In a strong rain storm or snow storm, visibility can go down to a few feet.
If you look vertically on a clear day, a human has effectively infinite visibility, assuming the distant object is big enough or bright enough to send enough light your way. For instance, with your naked eye, you can see a star that is a billion billion miles away.

Love your stylish glasses? You can thank Benjamin Franklin!

In the 1700s, eyeglasses were made by hand. The century's most important contributions to eyeglasses were the invention of side or temple pieces that rest over the ear (first advertised in 1728) and bifocals, invented by Benjamin Franklin, in 1784.

Vitamins C and E, zinc, lutein, zeaxanthin, and omega-3 fatty acids all play a role in eye health. They can help prevent cataracts, clouding of your eye lens. They may also fight the most-likely cause of vision loss when you're older: age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
