I used to think tears were peices of your eyes liquifying and comming out and every time you cried you eyes would get smaller one day me and my friend were on the school bus and I told her my theory and she beleived me, not that we're older we know its not true but she still makes fun of me for thinking it was.

When I was younger, I believed that because blind people were awake with their eyes closed, they slept with their eyes open.

I used to believe I had really good eyesight before I got glasses. I thought the blurry specs were bacteria. Oh, yes, when I was 8, I could see bacteria.

I used to think that being blind meant the same thing as being white (skin color).

i used to believe that the colour of your eyes was all to do with nature. i had a few freinds who had blue eyes, some had green eyes and some had brown eyes like me. and i thought that when people were born they had no colour in their eyes, so people with brown eyes and hazel eyes had earth put in their eyes, people with blue eyes had sky put in their eyes, people with green eyes had grass put in their eyes and people with grey eyes were people whose eyes had been forgotten to be filled in.

I used to believe that when you were crying, it was your eyes melting, so I was always afraid that if I cried too much, my eyes would melt out and I'd be blind.

I used to believe I could actually see though my hand! I have extremely poor vision in my right eye, legally blind, can't see the big E on the eye chart. When I covered my right eye, I could see fine with my left eye. When I covered my left eye, I could barely see. I didn't realize I was looking with my nearly blind eye, and was excited to know I could actually see through my hand. I never told anyone my secret power!

Kids in my school would ask if I could see without my glasses, and I said no. They said they thought I was actually blind, as in with my eyes closed.

Some other kids thought that when I took my glasses off, was I secretly like Superman who could only do his special powers when he took his glasses off and changed his clothes.

I used to believe that you were only classed as blind if you had your eyes closed.

When I was younger, I believed that only people with blue eyes could see every color because their eyes were "clear" enough to see colors (I have blue eyes, so this made sense) and that people with brown or green eyes only saw those respective hues. Every one in my family had blue eyes so I never had a chance to really ask anyone else.

I used to believe that everyone else could move their eyes except me because I couldn't see my eyes move left or right in the mirror.

when I was a little girl, I used to lie in the grass and watch the blue sky. Then one day, a friend of mine came and said to me that if I stared at the sky for too long, my eyes would pop out and I would be blind for ever. I didn't look at the sky for years.

I used to believe that the colour of someones eyes told you about their personality.
I used to think people with brown eyes were mean, people with blues kind and people with green eyes smart.
I was such a dumb kid, though my theory has proven pretty correct in the area where i live. Strange.....

When I was young, I once thought that I could see bacteria. They didn't even look like real life bacteria, only green, big-eyed cartoon characters.

I used to believe that everytime someone took a picture of you with a flash camera-- and you got that light stuck in your sight for a while-- they were stealing a little bit of your sight. I wondered why famous people weren't blind. I also thought that was why I took such awful pictures-- because I hadn't earned enough 'sight' to make good pictures, like professional photographers.

When I was in like yr 1 was this girl who had a lazy eye and every day she had to wear a patch for a few hours to correct it. I was convinced her parents were pirates and refused to go to her birthday parties untill yr 3.
