38. The Eyes Are The Window To The Retina.

Human eyes are pretty impressive, but let’s be honest, our ocular organs don’t hold a candle to the eyes of animals like owls, mantis shrimp, cats, eagles, dragonflies, octopuses, bees, parrots, goats, chameleons… Ok, maybe human eyes aren’t all that impressive after all.

They’re eyeballs.

Today K+K discuss:

  • The anatomy of the eyeball
  • Color and light wave perception (what is a color, really?)
  • How to see with amazing precision at a distance, or at night (hint: become an owl)
  • The amazing mantis shrimp (who may not actually be as amazing as you’ve been told, but then by the end you’ll think they’re amazing again)
