When i was little i used to believe that only girls had eyelashes, that was untill i saw a boy in my class who had very long eyelashes. Still for a while after that i thought he was just very girly

someone once told me that the reason why our eyes close when we sneeze is because if we didn't, the pressure from the sneeze would cause our eyes to pop out. this always interested me, and for awhile whenever i sneezed, i would try to keep my eyes open to see if it was true. i never succeeded in doing so, and today i'm thankful that i couldn't...just in case it really is true. :D

My school district provided free vision and hearing tests for all elementary students. From kindergarten on, I had the idea that failing a test at school would be Really Bad. So when I took the eye test and couldn't see the chart, the nurse frowned and I thought I was going to get in trouble.

So I cheated by pretending not to know my letters and guessing until she said I was right. She must have thought I was a moron, but a moron who could see. Years later in junior high my mom finally figured out why I had headaches all the time, and it turned out I have 20/200 vision and needed glasses all along.

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 had glasses since kindergarden and I used to hate them when i was little...i thought that if i did alot of different movements with my eyes like looking up, down, to the sides, or around and around etc it would strengthen my eyes and i wouldnt need glasses anymore

When it's twighlight, your vision goes sort of grainy. I used to believe that this was because I could see air molecules.

I used to think that if you closed your eyes, you convince others that you were blind.

When I was younger I used to believe that if I rubbed my eyes the color for my eye would smear. And I always checked in the mirror.

Ever since I was 12, I believed that my mom really saw a guy sneeze his eyes out. So whenever someone sneezed, I'd yell out "Close your eyes!"

When I was little, my mom always told me that if I kept my eyes crossed for too long, they'd stick that way. Now, I know this "belief" is a bit cliche, but I had NO idea that it wasn't true until a couple of months ago!! I'm now 13. I was so suprised!

I have two different colored eyes. (one brown and one light blue). When I was little I noticed that everyone had eyes that were both the same color so i aked my father why mine were different. He said it was becuase when I was born, one of my eyes didn't work,and that I would have to get it removed and then replaced with a different eye. But in my case, they didn't have any brown eyes left to put in my socket, so they used a blue one. I beileved this story until about three years ago (I'm 15 now). My friends have give me the nickname odd-eyed Sage because of it. Yikes...

As a kid, I couldn't understand how people could move their eyeballs around. When I looked in the mirror, they were always pointed straight at the mirror. I even asked other kids how they moved their eyes like that. They only looked at me with bewildered expressions, or infuriatingly rolled their eyes at me.

However, the flipside of this is that I didn't think people could tell I was looking at them if my head wasn't pointed straight at them. I was so sneaky.

This all fell apart when a teacher put me into timeout because I rolled my eyes when she told me to stop doing some stupid thing. At first I didn't understand what had happened. Over the course of my timeout, I pieced all this eye business together.

Me & some friends used to think that if you saw someone's eye's they automatically saw you,

We used to play games where we would avoid making eye contact to test this out.

I used to believe that if I pushed down on my upper eyelids too much, my eyes would pop out.

While driving down the road, I told my mom that I needed to pluck my eyebrows, she asked why and I replied that I didn't want them to intercourse.

I used to believe i had a ceamera in my head. To snap a picture you would have to blink two quickly. To advance the film you would scatch the back of your head a few times.

As a child I always wondered why I could see everyone else's face and not mine.
