Incredible Eye Facts

Often taken for granted, your eyes are a wonderful and vital part of your life. Eyes are your most precious sense. Below are some incredible Eye Facts.

Incredible Eye Facts

  • Eyes are the most complex organs you possess except for your brain.
  • Are composed of more than two million working parts.
  • Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the US. Yet, glaucoma can be controlled with little or no further vision loss, if detected at an early stage and treated promptly.
  • Glaucoma occurs more frequently in certain groups of people such as those who are over 40, diabetics, and people who are very nearsighted.
  • The number one cause of blindness in adults in the United States is diabetes.
  • Under the right conditions, can discern the light of a candle at a distance of 14 miles.
  • The Human eye can detect 10 million color hues, but cannot see ultraviolet or infrared light.
  • 85% of what we know comes through our eyes. 80% of our memory is in the form of images.
  • On average we blink our eyes between 10,000 – 20,000 times a day.
  • The “blink of an eye” lasts only a tenth of a second, but that’s all the time needed to clear away dust particles and spread lubricating fluids across the eyeball. Our brains have been trained to ignore blinks.
  • Our eye muscles that move the eye are the strongest in the body
  • Human eyes are always the same size from birth, but your nose and ears never stop growing.
  • The older we are the less tears we produce.
  • Foods shown to help vision are those that are rich in vitamin A which are needed for night vision such as carrots and other orange foods that contain carotene which the body converts to vitamin A.
  • A professional eye exam can detect early signs of health and sight-threatening diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Together with other tests, eye professionals can also detect neurological disease and glaucoma, a potentially blinding disease if left untreated. Early detection and prevention are crucial to the successful treatment of these diseases.
  • Pediatric and Infant Exams are very important. Physician will perform a quick screening for your child for gross abnormalities at the hospital when your child is born. Vision for an infant is almost adult like before they are one year old. We recommend that your child have their first eye exam at age six to eight months. A comprehensive eye exam can pick up subtle problems that, if left untreated, can cause severe, often irreversible vision loss.

Dry Eyes – (Dry Eye Syndrome)

When the eyes don’t produce enough tears or the right quality of tears, the result is a condition called keratitis sicca, popularly known as dry eye syndrome. Colorado’s sunny, windy and dry climate can help lead to dry eye symptoms. See your local Colorado Visionsource Eye Doctor if you’ve had prolonged signs and symptoms of dry eyes, including red, irritated, tired or painful eyes. When left untreated, severely dry eyes may lead to chronic infection of your eye and eyelids, corneal ulceration, scarring and permanent vision loss.  Your eye doctor can help determine the best options for helping you manage and treat your dry eye symptoms.> Read More of this Article

How Eyes of Owls and Humans are similar

Owls and people both have binocular vision. Binocular vision is when the two eyes are in front of the head and see the same thing with both eyes. Binocular vision also helps by seeing how fast an object is going, how far away it is and the size.Humans have a field of vision of 180 degrees and 120 degrees with each eye. Owls only have a 125 degree field of vision, 50 degrees with each eye. Owls can’t move their eyes around in their sockets so they must move their head. Owls have fourteen neck bones. Their neck bones let an owl turn its head 270 degrees in both directions. This is not quite a full turn. Unlike us, an owl can turn its head around to see what is sneaking up behind it.
