We all know that tears happen to be seen on our eyes for different reasons such as sorrow, joy, separation, reunion and many others. Even when you chop onions you get tears in your eyes. Tears normally secrete in order to lubricate our eyes and to protect eyes from microorganisms. Rose-Lyn Fisher in her inquisitiveness on looking for similarities and differences of different types of tears we get in different occasions has put a drop of each of these tears under microscope and looked at the patters formed. Though it is not a scientific way of studying tears she noticed that patterns formed under the microscope by different tears looked different.
She did her work for a few years using her own tears as well as tears from others. Different types of tears she examined included tears obtained from different occasions such as laughing, yawning, sorrow, rejection, frustration and many more. The amazing observation she has made was that each of the microscope field created with these samples of tears looked like aerial views of landscape and each one was looking different from the rest. Though it took years for her to complete the study, by the time she completed it she was in possession of some amazing results.
Due to the fact that what she saw when different types of tears were looked at through the microscope showed a similarity to topography of landscape viewed from the sky she called her study also the topography of tears. The following are the set of pictures she obtained in the study and they offer you some interesting things to think of. One of the most interesting aspects of this study is that despite the fact that it is the chemistry of tears that should be different when they are obtained at different events it is their looks when viewed under the microscope that have changed in appearance. Now let’s look at the results she got.
1- Grief Gives One Of The Types of Tears
This is the type of tears you get when you are in the grip of grief.
2- The Laughter Tears
Types of Tears tell that this kind fall from your eyes when you laugh until you cry.
3- Change is Faced
When you happened to face change this is the type of tears you shed.
4- Combating Onions
This is one of the most common types of tears and your eyes will get wet with such tears when you chop onions.
5- For Re-Unions
When you make a timeless reunion this is the kind of tears your eyes will have.
6- Basal Tears
You will find this picture when you look at basal tears under microscope.
7- From Remembrance
Tears of remembrance will appear like this when examined under microscope.
8- Possibility & Hope
When tears come to your eyes due to possibility and hope, they will look like this.
9- On Luminal Moments
At a luminal moment you will find this type of tears in your eyes.
10- Tears of Ending and Beginning
This is the kind of tears you will get at the beginning and end of a time when you shed tears.
11- When Released
Tears of release will look like this.
12- Momentum and Redirection
Momentum and redirection are also occasions where different types of tears will fill your eyes and this picture shows that kind of tears.
All Types of Tears are a nature’s gift to humans and they are there to clean your eyes and to protect them from harmful bacteria and other microorganisms but tears are a sign language we have got by nature. The only trouble is that you cannot hide them even if you want. Tears also are able to show your emotions even without your knowledge. It is not such a difficult task for you to not to show your facial expressions when you are overtaken by emotions but you won’t be able to do the same with tears. While you are not able to stop tears in many different moods it is also not possible for you to prevent different types of tears showing different pattern when put under the microscope.
What the study carried out by Rose-Lynn Fisher reveals is the artistic side of tears formed in our eyes on different occasions. She finds resemblance of patterns she obtained by dry tears when put under the microscope to patterns found on earth in certain regions of the world where erosion has created similar patterns. However, she assumes that there could be a scientific foundation also for what she found. She thinks that if public interest is directed towards the patterns she found, scientific studies may follow. It is quite possible for a scientist to get interested on these patterns and he could start a project to find if there is any scientific relationship to these patters in case everyone starts talking about these patterns. We will keep our fingers crossed to find when this scientist emerges with the results of scientific study done on patters created by different types of tears.
