Interesting Facts About Eyes

#1: Second Powerful Organ

They utilize 65% of your brainpower. They can develop about 36,000 bits of information an hour. They are the second most powerful body part after brain. The real eye is always working and not at all sleeps.

#2: Weight

They manage 85% of all the information you will ever get. The estimated weight of a human eyeball is about 28 grams. The most critical part of your eye is as fragile as a wet tissue.

#3: Automatically Adjust

The images that are send to your brain are in reality upside down and backwards. Your eyes adjust in just milliseconds in order to keep stability whenever you move your head. Your pupil change in size in order to let in the correct amount of light. The only element of the body that doesn’t have blood vessels is the cornea. The human eye can differentiate about 500 shades of gray

#4: Size

The standard human eye is about 1 inch in diameter. Your eyes begin to expand in two weeks after formation. Your eyes are for all time the same size from birth.

#5: Strongest Muscles

Some interesting facts about eyes related to eye muscles are worth knowing: The outer muscles that move the eyes are the strongest muscles in the human body for the work that they have to do. They are 100 times more controlling than they need to be.

#6: Blinks

A blink last about one tenth of a second but there is no clear cut normal number of blinks per minute. Actually, blink rates per minute vary from 2 blinks to 50 blinks per minute per person. This means that in one minute people use between 1/5 of a second to 5 seconds with their eyes closed.

#7: Wonder

Your eye is a scientific wonder. The human eye functions similar like a camera, only much more intricate. Your eye adjusts to light and dark. Try to perform this basic experiment: Walk into the restroom with the lights off and after that turn on the light while looking in the mirror. Observe how your pupil shrinks.

#8: No Transplants

Eye transplants are not so far promising to make the blind see since the optic nerve is so composite and thin-skinned and it has not yet been revealed how to renew healthy retinal cells. However, advancement is constantly being made in the field.

#9: Hole in Eyes

Each of our eyes has a blind spot that is the effect of the connecting point among the optic nerve and retina. You will never perceive the hole in your image because your eyes do job in cahoots with one another to recompense for each others blind spots.

#10: No Rest

Another interesting fact about eyes is that the eye is the merely part of the body that not at all needs rest. It can function entirely at any moment, day or night (your eyelids and external muscles require rest, and eye lubrication have to be replaced, but the eye itself in no way has to rest)
