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".
A girl in my class told me that going for an eye (sight) test involved the optician taking my eyeballs out of my head to check the back of them. I had visions of the optician gently breathing on my eyeballs to mist them up, then rubbing them up and down his sleeves ito clean them, must like how my mom would clean the lenses on her glasses. I was terrified!
I used to believe that blind dates were dates for people who were blind.
I used to love playing Hide and seek as a kid, my favourite was to close my eyes and put my hands over them really tightly, i really believed that if i couldn't see them, they couldn't see me.
I used to believe that when you looked at something your eyes actually left your head and went to that object. I would sit on the couch and look at the television. If my brother were looking at the television I thought that I could push his eyes out of the way with mine. I also thought that if I were looking at the tv and someone walked into the room and I looked away my eyes would be traveling across the room and if they ran into someone they may not make it back to my head. I also tried to use that theory to my advantage to "hit" my brother with my eyes when he came into the room. I was willing to risk losing my eyes if I could just get one up on my brother.
My brother was born with one brown eye and one blue eye (seriously!) When I asked my mother why, she said because he couldn't make up his mind.
Until I was five or six, I believed that my eyeballs might fall out so at random times during the day I would close my right eye to make sure my left eye was still in tact and capable of seeing...and then close my left eye to affirm my right eyeball was still in my head and in working order.
I use to believe that if you went underwater without closing your eyes first, you would go blind. I would always make sure my eyes were shut real tight before going underwater! I think I got this idea when I was real young from a movie that I completely misunderstood.
I used to think that when I closed my eyes, I saw my imagination.
When I was very young I had a lazy eye, and so suffered from double vision until it was corrected. If I was looking at say a chocolate bar, I'd think that if I concentrated really hard, I'd be able to grab the double and have two!
When I was small kid my older brother told me that if you stomped on the ground too hard both your eyes would pop out of your head at the same time getting smaller and smaller like a nesting doll..
I used to think that the reason that we are able to see is that light somehow comes out of our eyes and illuminates the scene in front of us. I apparently never thought about why this doesn't work in dark rooms!
However, I have since read that grown adults used to believe the same thing in the Middle Ages, so it must be a common misconception.
My belief (still) is if an eyelash goes in your eye and you lose sight of it it then goes behind your eye ball and gets stuck there (i have about 20 there now - and it panics me)
I used to believe that I had a fly inside my eye - for years! When I was six, a fly went right into my left eye and of course flew away instantly but I thought for years that I had remainings of it inside my eye...
At the ripe age of 4 I was learning how to count, but didn't grasp the concept of "pairs" i.e "pair of eyes". So when a family aquaintance, at the old age of 10 tried to explain that people had "a pair of eyes," I knew she wasn't as smart as she thought she was because I could count now, and people (most importantly, myself included) actually had TWO eyes not one, so I believed quite firmly we all had "2 pairs of eyes" not one, as she so adamantly proclaimed.
When i was real young i thought that if i covered my eyes with my hands, other people couldn't see me becouse i couldn't see them. I was always the first one found in "Hide-and -Seek."
When I was about 9, I had a small growth on my eyelid (which was eventually removed). I was convinced it would grow into another eyeball.
I used to think that the sleep in my eyes at the breakfast table were toast crumbs.
That the pupil was actually a hole in your eye, and you could put a pencil inside it. I used to hold a pencil up to my eyeball in the mirror, but thankfully never plucked up quite enough courage to do it.
When I was little my older sister Silvia used to wear a black pirate patch over her right eye for fun.She always told me she lost her right eye in a bee bee gun accident.When I was 7yrs old she stoped wearing the patch for a while and I found out she was just joking about it.:) But to tell you the truth I actually thought it was cool having a big sister who woar an eye patch.lol
