Anyway, I'm just curious as to whether the color of our eyes have anything to do with any possible overlaying shading of the color we view the world through, or at least if you close your eyes and wait a bit and open them if you see everything as a tint towards the color of your eyes. Just curious, and always looking for answers.
Thanks to any and all comments.
Cyanopsia is a medical term for seeing everything tinted with blue. It is also referred to as blue vision. Cyanopsia often occurs for a few days, weeks, or months after removal of a cataract from the eye. Cyanopsia also sometimes occurs as a side effect of taking sildenafil(Viagra), Cialis, or Levitra (Viagra and vision, n.d.).......
The eye's lens is normally tinted yellow. This reduces the intensity of blue light reaching the retina. When the lens is removed because of cataract, it is usually replaced by an artificial intraocular lens; these artificial lenses are clear, allowing more intense blue light than usual to fall on the retina, leading to the phenomenon.
Q: Why do my two eyes seem to perceive color differently? A: There are a a couple of reasons for this. One is that sometimes there are small physiological differences between the two eyes. This results in our color vision often being slightly different between our two eyes. Also, if you close one eye at a time to make comparisons, a second cause is adaptation. When you go into a dark place, dark adaptation helps your visual system to see better by making your eyes more sensitive to light. The opposite (light adaptation) makes your eyes less sensitive when there is plenty of light. When you close one eye, it is becoming dark adapted (more sensitive) and then when you open it back up all the colors will look brighter.
Q: Do different people see color differently? Q: Do all human beings see colour the same way? E.g. could I see green the way another sees red etc.? A: We can't really say for sure, but we do know enough about the anatomy, physiology, and psychology of vision to be quite certain that we are seeing things the same way. However, this ultimately becomes a question of philosophy ... do you believe that the experience I have when viewing red is the same as the experience you have when viewing red??? There is no way to prove it one way or the other. That said, there are small physiological differences between people that cause slight differences in color perception. These are particularly noticeable when making critical color matches.
