My 14 year old friend thinks that floaters are really "paranormal pictures from another realm" and that she is the "only one that sees them".

When I was younger, I used to believe that everyone who had glasses had a different perscription, and it was very rare to find someone with the same perscription.

Then I found out I just had really bad eyes and that's why I couldn't see out of my friends' glasses.

When angry with my mother, I would hold my thumb close to one eye and close the other. Voila, Mom disappeared!

When I first got glasses I was five years old, and I insisted on keeping them on at night, so I could see my dreams better

at the age of 5 i believed that you had to learn to move your eyes with out moving your head. i thought every time my eyes moved, my head moved and my eyes stayed locked straight ahead.i was quite mad atmy little brother when he "learned" how first. i then stood in front of the miror until bedtime(approx.45 mins.)and kept my eyes glued on my face and turned my haed.i practiced every day, and if some one was in the bathroom, id hold my head quite firmly with my hands,and lok at 1 object on my right, then my left, for 5 minutes. this stopped while on vacation and i forgot. I got home and realized i had "learned" how.

My nephew, age four, recently told me that eyebrows are the work of the devil, who created them so people could make angry and mean faces. Otherwise, we'd be happy and good all the time.

My father is color blind, and his color blindness was always described to me as not being able to see pink. So one day, I had on my favorite pink dress with flowers in the middle, and I went to ask my dad how it looked. He looked at me a little weird, and then said, "Is it a pink dress?" I freaked out and ran out of the room because I thought he could see through the color pink, and all he saw was me wearing underwear and flowers.

I was told that if you touch your pupil five times you would go blind. To date I have only touched it twice, both times before hearing this. Even at 41, I am unwilling to test this theory.

Until I was around 10 years of age, I thought that all the squiggly and swirly things you saw in your eyes were actually molecules. Everybody talked about how tiny molecules were and that no body can see them but I kept thinking..."Oh, yeah? I can see them!". I am a grown up now and I still wonder how they know they have split the atom...if an atom is too small to see, how can you possibly see half of one?

I used to rub my eyes all the time when I was little. My mom got frustrated with me, and told me that if I rubbed them too much, they would fall out. We were at the eye doctor when she said it, and I remember that he nodded in agreement with her. I was scared for years after that that if I touched my eye, even if there was something in it that was bothering me, it would fall out. :(

When I was little, I used to think the floaters that you see in your eyes were bugs or worms flying in front of me. I would swat at them trying to make them go away. I got alot of weird looks from people.

I used tot hink that when people talked about genes, they meant my jeans that you wear. My grandma said I had nice eyes because of my genes, and I was like "how to jeans give me nice eyes?"

i used to believe that whatever color your eyes are then that would be all you could see. Like if you had blue eyes everything would be blue. It never occured to me that I didn't see everything in brown the color of my eyes.

I used to think that if you watched tv close up for a very long time your eyes would actually turn square shaped, and that this had happened to people that wear square glasses! I was so relieved when my dad told me that it wasn't true!

I remember being in pre-K and I thought that when I closed my eyes and saw darkness that everyone saw the same darkenss. And I used to lie on my cot during nape time, blinking my eyes slowly and quickly just to confuse everyone. I just knew everyone was saying, "Who is turning the lights on and off."

Funny, how I knew to say lights, even though I thought it was my eyes...

I could see those "floaters" in my eyes when I was little. I used to believe that my eyes were as strong as microscopes because I thought I was seeing germs.

I used to beleive that whatever I though about would be projected onto my eyes so that other people could see it too. I stood in front of the mirror for hours before realizing that I probably coudn't see my own thoughts. I asked my friends if they could see but they said no too. I never got to see bugs bunny in my eye. :(

eye sparkles ... the lil white dots of light that zoom around your eyes when looking at a blue sky.. or white piece of paper.. (actually caused by floating white blood cells)

I used to believe that they were spirits on their journey to a happier place. Eye sparkles still make me smile with childlike joy
