Dearest Eyeologists,

As a sheepy I of course have excellent vision and it's my utilising my eyes that enables me to have vision...which is nice !

Eyes are my all time favourite things that are in my face and are eye shaped. Out of all these things...eyes are my favourite.




See Arbuthnot Templeton here?




Nice eh ?..he's a bit of a cad with his two tone eyes....quite a handsome fellow eh ?



If it was possible to remove our eyes and put them back in upside down, would we see upside down too ?



whajafink ?


hugs and shmishes



mwah mwah mwah !!

You would get used to it in a few days ...

George Stratton reported on experiments in which he wore eyeglasses that inverted his visual field of view. Stratton argued that since the image upon the retina was inverted, it seemed reasonable to examine the effect of presenting the retina with an "upright image".

His "upside-down" glasses consisted of two lenses of equal focal length, spaced two focal lengths, so that rays of light entering from the top would emerge from the bottom, and vice-versa. Stratton, upon first wearing the glasses, reported seeing the world upside-down, but, after an adaptation period of several days, was able to function completely normally with the glasses on.

I seem to remember a film clip where he (?) went to get out of bed and he turned towards the wall. This was after the glasses had been removed!
