The Deceptive Eye (Part 1 of 2)
Do your eyes ever play tricks on you? We’ll take a look at that on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Our eyes regularly play tricks on us with the help of our brains. Repeated research has shown that the images we see are not exactly what our eyes see. Our eyes and brains work together to construct the images we call sight. It’s not that our eyes are out to hoodwink us.
Working together, our brain and eyes add logical details to the images we see. Each of us has a blind spot in our vision because there are no vision cells where the optic nerve is. Instead of showing us a spot of nothing at the blind point in our field of vision, our brain invents an image from surrounding details.
Though our eyes sometimes trick us, it is for our good and another example of God’s incredible design.
