The Inner Workings of the Eye
One of the most amazing things about eyes is we can see them working. For example, if we stand in front of a mirror, we can see our pupils dilate. But sometimes the ability to see how our eyes are working can be a little bit strange if not downright unsettling.
Flashes and floaters are both examples of us seeing a little bit of our own eyes’ inner workings. Though both these phenomena are normal to an extent, both tend to baffle people when they happen. It’s important to understand how your eyes work so you can tell the difference between something normal and a signal that something is wrong.
