Seeing is such a big part of everyday life that it requires about half of the brain to get involved!

Newborns don’t produce tears. They make crying sounds, but the tears don’t start flowing until they are about 4-13 weeks old.

Did you know?

Each of your eyes has a small blind spot, where the optic nerve attaches to the retina. You don’t notice the hole in your vision because your eyes work together to fill in each other’s blind spot.

What does 20/20 mean?

Most people use this to describe perfect eyesight. Actually, it means that you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. By contrast, if you have 20/100 vision, you must be 20 feet away to see what a person with 20/20 vision can see at 100 feet.

New study in NEJM says smoking is associated with a decade of lost life, and cessation reduces that loss by about 90%. By quitting smoking before the age of 40 years, and preferably much earlier, you can reduce, by about 90%, the decade of life that is lost from continued smoking.

A lack of vitamin A in your diet can cause reduced night vision.

While this is true, it does not mean consuming more will help improve vision.

To detect light, both rods and cones exploit the unique properties of 11-cis retinal, a photosensitive derivative of vitamin A. In the presence of light, 11-cis retinal is isomerized to all-trans retinal, and the straightening of the polyene chain activates the opsin. While the formation of all-trans retinal is essential for activating photoreceptors and initiating vision, neither the opsin nor the all-trans retinal are sensitive to light, and new 11-cis retinal must be provided for photoreceptors to function continuously. Brief shortages of 11-cis retinal are an uncomfortable but common event. For example, the inability to see at night after passing an oncoming car's bright lights is partially due to the depletion of 11-cis retinal in rods. While vision recovers from transient shortages, prolonged 11-cis retinal deficits in conditions like vitamin A deficiency can eventually lead to more pronounced visual deficits.
