I used to think that everyone sees colors differently, but calls them they same thing. For example, what I see as blue may look green to someone else, but we all call it blue because that's how we learned it.

Then, a few years later, I learned about light waves and frequencies and all that fun stuff.

But I still think my theory is cooler.

One day, at about the age of six, I was being a pirate, complete with construction paper or something satped over one eye. My parents saw me and warned me that I should take that off, because if I didn't, I would soon go BLIND in that eye! I was horrified, took the patch off immediately, and after that was always careful never to have one eye closed for too long. If I thought I had kept it closed for too long, my solution was to close the other one for the same amount of time, so that if I did go blind, at least I'd be evenly blind in both eyes. ~_^ It didn't occur to me until I was about thirteen that this wasn't true, and trust me, up until then I had been very careful to even out my eye closage.

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

when i was younger, i got hit in the face in gym with a dodgeball or something. i kept crying not because my face hurt, but because i was convinced that my eyes were loose and were going to fall out.

When I was young I used to watch my mother put in her contacts and I was sure that if she wore her contacts and glasses at the same time, she could see through walls.

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.

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

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.

The first time I went on a roller coaster, my older brother told me that if I closed my eyes, the air pressure would suck them back into my head. So I had to do my frist roller coaster ride with my terrified eyes WIDE open for the whole trip!

I used to think that people saw the world in their own unique colors. For instance, to me, the grass was green, and what I called green was my own special tint and shade. Someone else, however, may see the grass as the color that I called orange, but to them, orange was green. I wondered if there were some kind of scientific test that could be done to figure this all out. I was going to be the world's greatest scientist LOLOL

My aunt told me that when eating an orange if I was to accidentally eat some of the peel I would get worms in my eyes. I still avoid eating oranges.

I used to believe that blind people couldn't see because they could see air, and it got in the way. Hence, if they were in a vacuum or if scientists came up with glasses that took the air out of your vision they would all be able to see. Eventually, when I got glasses, I realized this made no sense.

I must have been ten or eleven before I realised boys had eyelashes...well you know how cartoons have girls with huge eyelashes and boys with none.

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.

I used to think that if I tried hard enough, I could bend my vision to look around corners. And I thought other people could do it, too.

Along time ago when I was like 6 I decided that everybody saw diferent colors. One person would see pink and another would see blue.

One day when I was in the first grade, the school nurse walked into the classroom and announced she was going to check our eyes. Keeping my head down and sinking lower and lower into my tiny desk, I feared for my sight. I thought she was going pop my eyeballs right out of my head and examine them with her bare scaley hands!

In fact my daughter's belief was that I wasn't there when my eyes were closed. She used to peel my eyes open in the morning and shout "Daddy, Daddy, are you in"

I used to believe that what ever the color eyes you had was the color you see. My mom has brown eyes so I thought she can only see brown. I thought I had tye-dye eyes becasue I could see every color. I figured out that wasn't true when I turned 6.
