What Eyes You Have...!

When I found this article over at listverse, I had to research it to make sure it was real! I had never heard of it before!

Nearly every article I could find seems to agree that even though the condition is rare, it is very real! Pretty strange, don't you think?

Pupula Duplex



If the day comes that you fall off a building and Superman saves you, try not to look into his eyes because this is exactly what they might look like. A person with two pupils may have improved eyesight in more ways than one. They might be able to escalate the amount of visual information they take in as well as have enhanced focus. As the condition mostly appears in fiction many believe it to be myth—but there is sufficient proof of historical figures, most notably the famous Chinese emperor Liu Ch’ung, who were born with the condition.

There are many articles and pictures about this condition if you want to Google it. Makes for an interesting read!

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. It's supposed to storm today, and we need to be inside!

Boy, THAT was an eye opener pic!
Had to go back and get more coffee & put my glasses on. Don't think I have ever seen anything like that.
'Ya did good today, Mr. Hermit!
Coffee in the kitchen is fine - I'll bring bagels and cream cheese for all.

Very interesting!
I've never heard of this before and it's sort of cool at the same time as it's sort of scary looking :-) :-) :-)

I have however had a work friend who had a pupil lika a cat, couldn't see much with that eye though.

Have a great day!

That could freak a person out!

That would freak me out. Eyes are the window to the soul and all that.

That is really weird. Sure hope I don't ever need rescuing by superman. It is raining here also so save a place at the kitchen table for me.

Gives me the willies to just look at it - I sure don't want to read more or see more pictures. But thanks for the interesting story - you're always good for something new!
Big hugs -

Thats creepy!

I've never seen that either. Must be heck in keeping your contact lenses straight . . . :^)

JO said...

WOW that's kinda creepy. But to be able to see really good would be a bonus for sure.

We had some thunder last night and reain. Sky is crystal clear this morning but the forecast isn't all that good for later on.

Coffee in the kitchen it is.

The better vision would be a plus but the stares from other people would be minus. There is usually some good and some bad in all things.

Wow! I agree with all the other comments, that is pretty creepy. Thanks Uncle Hermit, you certainly do have the best posts and I enjoy reading them every morning. Your blog is still my first stop when I start my day. :)

Coffee in the kitchen sounds perfect, how about some chocolate chip muffins to go along with it?

Have a good day!

Hey Phyllis...
Pretty strange stuff, isn't it?

Just when you think you have seen it all...

Thanks for coming by this morning!



Hey Christer...
Having an eye like a cat would certainly be interesting. Don't think I've seen that one either!

Cool and scary! That about says it all!

Thanks for the visit today!



Hey Gorges...
It could and does, my friend!

Thanks for dropping by today!



Hey Sixbears...
Certainly not a common sight(no pun intended)!

Thanks for coming over this morning!



Hey Linda...
I had certainly never heard of this condition!

Plenty of room at the table today, so come on in!

Thanks for making it by this morning!



Hey Sis...
Glad you can find something interesting here! Don't want you to be bored at work, ya know?

Hey, thanks for coming over today!



Hey Anon 7:40...
I would imagine that would be a problem, for sure!

Thanks for the visit today!



Hey Jo...
It is creepy, without a doubt!

At 10:54 AM it's black as midnight here. That's sort of creepy as well!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over today!



Hey Dizzy...
Guess everything has some drawbacks, even better vision!

People always stare at things that are different!

Thanks, buddy, for coming over this morning!

HermitJim said...

Hey Felinae...
So glad that you still come over each day to give us a read!

I really like finding these unusual things to talk about!

Many thanks for stopping by today!

Mamahen said...

HermitJim said...

Hey Mamahen...
Plenty to think about if you saw a person looking at you with eyes like that!

Hey, thanks for coming over today!
