What’s the truth about our remarkable gift of sight? Illustrations and demonstrations debunk 10 vision myths, from colour mixing to why the inverted image in your eye doesn’t need turning right way up again. Popular books and websites have lots of information about our sense of sight – but much of it just isn’t true!

|Isaac Newton experimented with and wrote about the way we see, particularly the relationship between light, colour and optics. He used his own eyes to test his theories, risking blindness in the pursuit of a clearer understanding of vision.
