I used to believe that if you kept your eyes open for too long, they would fall out. I spent most of third grade squinting.

until the age of seven I believed that blind people could only see the colour yellow, and that is why guided tour paths in wildlife parks, zoos etc. were painted yellow, on the floor, thanks to the comments of a primary school teacher. I later worked out that blind people cant see anything regardless of colour.

when i was a kid i used to think that people saw things in different colours... what I call orange may be different than what you'd call orange.. maybe what I call orange you call blue.. This was my only explination as to why everyone's favourite colour wasnt purple: we just called the same colour different things.

I used to believe that my grandma took her eyes out every night and put them on the nightstand. In the morning she would put them back in. I was convinced because one morning I asked my mom if I needed to wake up grandma and she told me, ""Oh, she's awake, she's just putting in her eyes."

Apparently that phrase meant glasses.

I use to believe that everyone saw things differently, as in, if i saw something yellow someone else was seeing it in green.

I used to believe that people with brown eyes saw tree bark as brown and, since my eyes are grey/blue, tree trunks looked grey to me.

People see in the color there eyes are. I have blue eyes, so of course I thought only people with blue eyes could see all colors.

When I was little my dad told me that if I make crosseyes, my eyes will freeze that way. Then I'd have to be shipped to an island with all the other crosseyed people, an they'd just dump me there and leave me forever. I wouldn't coss my eyes for years

I used to believe cameras had eyes behind the lens. I believed this until I was 8 and my mom dropped her camera and broke it.

When I first overheard my brother talking about 20/20 vision I asked what it was and my mom said it's perfect vision. I thought this meant no matter how dark it was or even if your eyes were damaged you could see perfectly.

When I was little I thought that if you watched too much TV your pupils would turn into squares.. I used to weep everytime a movie was put on because I was convinced that if I watched the entire movie my eyes would become square.

i used to think flies, if they landed on your face, would crawl behind your eyeballs and lay eggs. i also thought that when you closed your eyes your eyeballs would roll all the way back into your head. and the squiggly lines you saw when they were closed were the little fly babies.

I believed that your eyes could wear out. So every night before I went to sleep, I tried to remember if I had winked or looked at something through one eye only. I would then close the "overused" eye and leave the other open until I felt they were even. That way, when I was old, they would burn out at the same time.
