Our senses help us navigate and interact with the environment and help us process the sensory information.
They are sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste. We use them on daily basis, thus we take them for granted. Until something happens to them, you do not even realize how much you rely on them.
Let us see which the strangest things that can happen to your yes are:
1. Eye cancer – eye tumors exist in many forms. Tumors can develop anywhere on the eye and the most common kind are called limbal dermoids. Most of these tumors are benign, but they can have some unusual characteristics such as hair growth.
2.Star in the eye – this is another name for cataracts. This is common among older people, however, other people develop them from unusual situations. There was an electrician in Florida that came into contact with 14 thousand volts of electricity which travelled through his body and his optic nerve. This caused him develop cataracts which looked like star.
3. Tooth in the eye– People can have a tooth in their eye, for very different reasons. These are two cases of people having teeth in their eye, one from a tumour and another placed in a patients eye by a doctor. A girl in India, Nagabhushanam Siva, was born with a tumour in her eye that had been growing for years. When they took out the tumour, it had two teeth in it. Because of the kind of tumour that it was, it could develop into any kind of tissue so it grew teeth. Likewise, Martin Jones had been blind for a decade after a work accident, and was able to see again after doctors tried a groundbreaking new procedure. The procedure consisted of taking out one of his front teeth and placing it into his eye to act as a lens holder.
4.Albino red eyes – this is caused by lack of melanin and pigment. These people have pale skin, white hair, and pink/red seeming eyes. Melanin provides the eyes with their color, but lack of it causes the eyes to go transparent. The eyes appear red since the blood vessels behind them can be seen through the lenses. These people are very sensitive to light, thus they wear sunglasses all the time.
5. Color blindness – People who are color blind are not able to differentiate between certain colors, such as blue and yellow or red and green. It can make reading a traffic light difficult, but is an otherwise harmless condition. It’s a genetic condition that affects more males than females.
6.Two different colored eyes – this syndrome has a couple of versions. Heterochromia iridum is benign and genetic, caused by lack of melanin. It can also be caused by a disease or a traumatic event. The eyes are similarly colored, and may not be evident instantly. Most of the people have sectoral heterochromia where only one part of the eye has a different color.
