When I was four my elder sister told me that the white tear ducts in my eyes were actually full of spider eggs that spiders laid there while I was sleeping. She said that everytime I cried the spiders would be born on my face. I didnt cry for weeks.

When I was four years old I had to have some extentsive eye-surgury or else I would have gone blind in my right eye. Everything went well (though I will always be farsighted and need glasses) but inspite of all the information I learned about the surgury before-hand, I thought that the docter quite simply took my eyes out of there sockets and then switched the left and right so they would face the right way.

Still, even that thought wasnt as scary as the eye-drops!

My parents told me that if I got hit in the head while I was crossing my eyes they would stay that way

my mom took me to the eye doctor for the first time when i was in 7th grade. my brothers were telling me scary stories about what happens while at the eye doctor. my one brother said they put 2 types of eye drops in your eyes, one thats really hot, and the other thats really cold. well, i imagined them putting the hot ones in my eyes first, and they would catch on fire, so then they would have to put the cold ones in to put out the flames. this would cause my eyes to become frozen, and in the process, my pupils would get different sizes from the scorching heat and ice cold sensations. to make it worse, i thought that when they give you those paper sunglasses to wear afterwards were to keep your frozen eyes from falling out, and to keep the scorching hot sun as far away as possible. The day before my doctor appointment, i cried for hours, terrified of what was going to happen to me. i still don't like going to the eye doctor to this day.

i can see clearly now the pain is gone...

i have always had a very vivid imagination. you know those crusty little eye boogers? i used to believe that they were tiny letters sent to me by angels...i would always try to hold onto them as long as possible, maybe even put them in my pocket. i remember crying once because i lost one; i was quite convinced that it was sent to me by my grandmother.

One day in elementary school we were playing outside on the playground when i got something in my eye. So i went into the bathroom to get it out and to my surprised found, what i believed to be, a splinter in the corner of my lower eyelid. Well, i've come to learn that "splinter" is really the tear duct for when u cry.

I used to believe that my eyes worked by shooting out my sense of sight to the object, to 'see' it. Later learnt that it worked the other way round, and even later learnt that Plato shared my childhood belief, saying that rays of light shout out of the eyes to see objects.

I used to belive that if you held a flashlight up to your eyes, you would eventually be able to see perfectly in the dark. I would spend hours "working" on my night vision ablilties.

Today, I wear glasses.

For the longest time, I used to believe an odd thing about sleep crusties (the bits of dead skin that build up in the corners of your eyes, yano)
I would tell myself every night, not to rub them out in the morning, because I believed that if you left it long enough, the crusties would build up in a mold of you eye. I thought it would be so cool to have a crusty mold of my eye (??). Of course, I was weak and never accomplished this feat ;)

When I was little, I was such a big cry baby and my cousins teased me a lot about this. One night, my cousin told me if I cried too much, I'd run out of water for my tears and cry blood instead, just like those statues of saints. I was terrified about this statement, and started crying. I ran to the mirror in my aunt's room, and I saw that my eyes were red!(I never noticed this before for some reason) I told myself to stop crying since blood would come out faster, but I'd cry even more.


It was a weird process, and I cried a lot that night. 0_0;;

I used to believe that all boys had brown eyes and all girls had blue eyes, because in my family of 3 females and 3 males this is how is it was.

Whenever I played outside my parents would say that I could go as far as I like, so long as they could see me. And that if I could see them, they could see me. Using this logic I came to the conclusion that by closing my eyes, they wouldn't be able to see.
Many of my friends also had parents that told them this, and we had all come to the same conclusion. This made playing hide and seek very confusing.

When i was little i thought that blind people just had there eyes glued shut. So i would walk around with my eyes closed and thought that people would think that i was blind.

When I was in Kindergarten, my teacher told us that people had eyes in the back of their heads, and that day I went home crying because I thought I was going blind (since the eyes in the back of my head didn't work).

When I was little, we took a bus ride and I noticed an overweight man. I turned to my mom and told her I knew what "hangover" meant... it was when your stomach hanged over your belt.

When i was younger i believed that if you did get rid of the crud in your eye right when you woke up, then your eyes would get clogged and fall out like they were on a very long piece of pink yarn and if they fell out you would have to hold your eyeballs in your hands for the rest of your life. I also thought that pink eye shadow was so cool and because i wasn't allowed to wear make-up i put bubble gum on it, so the color (not the gum) would stick.

when i was little i was always told i had such big beutiful eyes. when i was a little older (and people still always complimented me on my eyes) i saw someone at super cuts who's eyes were buldging out of their eye sockets. i was afraid that i would look like that when i was older. so i told my mom that, and she explained that the person had some sort of surgery or something because she had some kind of disease. i was relieved, but to this day i feel bad for that lady.
