Your eyes are the most complicated part of your body, and in See for Yourself! The Ultimate Guide to Eyes, you'll understand how they work!

Have you ever wondered why are your eyes the color they are? How far away can a fish see you when you're swimming? How does a rabbit watch two different things at the same time? When were eyeglasses invented? What happens to people's eyes in outerspace

In See for Yourself! The Ultimate Guide to Eyes, you’ll find out the answers to all of these questions and so much more. The eye is the most complicated piece of your, and pretty much any animal's body. With this book you'll discover the amazing types of eyes that exist in the animal world and find out how your eyes and brain communicate to perceive light and colors. With helpful tips and photos, you will learn how to keep your eyes safe and healthy, and even what happens when you visit an eye doctor. 

Dorothea DePrisco grew up in a small Long Island south shore hamlet, Blue Point. As a child, she wrote stories and drew pictures about her neighbors and handed them out as gifts. She fondly remembers the joy on people’s faces when they read her stories, and this memory drives her to spark the imagination of children every day. A former editor at Scholastic Book Clubs and a high school English teacher, she has written more than 90 books for young readers. Recent titles include Smithsonian Discover: Earth, Discovery Spaceopedia, Animal Planet Baby Animals, and Who’s in the Ocean? She lives in Vacaville, CA.
