I can see it is light less than a foot away from me, light that is obviously not in my eyes.
That light may be a foot away, but it still has to travel from the bulb or object, enter your eye, hit your retina, and send the image to your brain. That is the process of seeing, it is well understood and there is plenty of information on the web if you don't believe us.

Why not go and ask on some other fora, there are lots of them, I'm sure they would be happy to explain.

Did you look up stereoscopic vision - ie distance perception?
