Science is a funny thing sometimes. We get excited about being wrong just as much as being right. The way we study things allows us to gather good, helpful data from something that doesn’t work or isn’t how we thought it was.
Rather than repeat the entire article I want to share this week, I’ll start by saying that it’s about a recent discovery in the canine eye. It has implications for human health, and it causes doubt in our belief that dogs don’t have very sharp vision. It caught my attention because we’d talked about and given examples of how dogs and cats see the world. Turns out that it may not be entirely correct!
Here’s a labeled diagram of an eye to help you with some of the anatomy mentioned in the article.
