Ten facts about your eyes

1 2 3

The skin around the eyes is one of the first areas where people show aging. Find 10 surprising facts about your eyes and learn how to make them even more beautiful.

1. The color of your eyes: Your eye color doesn’t set until you turn two. All babies are always born with a blue eye color. Eye color is determined by the amount of melanin in your eyes. The more melanin you have in your iris, the darker your eyes will be.

2. Blue eyes: People with blue eyes all share a common ancestor with every other blue-eyed person in the world. According Nature Neuroscience, the first blue –eyed person existed 6,000- 10,000 years ago.  Before that everyone had brown eyes. He or she was born with a gene which could not produce enough melanin to create brown eyes, resulting in a unique DNA sequence that was transmitted to every other blue-eyed person ever since: despite thousands of years having passed, each and every person with blue eyes can still be traced back to this single ancestor.

3. Female eyes: Men require longer wavelengths to perceive the same hues as women. This means men are less adept at distinguishing shades in the center of the color spectrum.

4. Eyes are able to process 36,000 pieces of information in a single hour and 80% of our memories are determined by what we see. In an average life, your eyes will see 24 million different images. The human eye only sees 3 colors: red, green and blue. All others colors are the combination of these.  For example, the human eye can see 500 shades of gray.

5. Blinking: We are blinking 10-15 times a minute, each blink lasting for 100-150 milliseconds, and around 5.2 million times a year, but a number of times you actually blink varies and depends on what you are doing. You blink more when you talk. Your eyes become tired when you read or stare at a computer, this because you blink less often. When working at a computer, you should follow the 20-20-20 rules – look at something twenty feet away from your computer every twenty minutes for twenty seconds.

6. Optical debris: The small dots you see floating in your vision; they are optical debris... such as dead cells, floating in your visual field.

7. Security factors: While a fingerprint has 40 unique characteristics, an iris has 256. This is why retina scans are increasingly being used for security purposes.

8. Eat right to protect your sight—in particular, eat plenty of dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens, and fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, albacore tuna, trout and halibut.

9. Eye treatment and dark circle therapy. Dark circles are characterized by the blood vessels present underneath the skin’s surface around the eyes. There are numerous causes of dark circles. Here are some of the most common causes: lack of sleep, allergies, age, broken blood vessels, anemia, hyperpigmentation, dehydration, nutritional causes and smoking.
