You see with your brain...

Whenever one of my optical store customers picks up their new prescription eyeglasses and they feel a “little off” and I know that their prescription was prescribed and fill correctly I go into my explanation about how we see….it’s with your brain. Visual stimulus enters your eyes traveling to the retina shooting nerve impulses to your brain. Sometimes when you have even the slightest change to your prescription your brain needs to adapt to the modification of the imagery that is coming in. That’s the simple explanation.

What makes this so interesting is that every one of us processes imagery differently. So how you see things is quite different from the way I may see things. The exact same things are seen and interpreted differently in each and every one of us. 

So you see one thing, I see another...very cool!
