They Looked At Tears Under Microscope And What It Revealed Will Shock You!

Like Dosed on FB: 
There are three basic kinds of tears that we all produce. Basal tears are produced continuously in our eyes to keep them lubricated, reflex tears which flush out external irritants, and then psychic (or emotional) tears.

Not all tears are the same. Yes, now it’s scientifically proved. Don’t you believe? Ok, let me introduce artist Rose-Lynn Fisher who discovered this after taking a microscope to her tears and examining and documenting the differences between them.

“The Project began in a period of personal change, loss, and copious tears. One day I wondered if my tears of grief would look any different from my tears of happiness.” Fisher writes on her website.

It turns out, the tears our bodies produce vary greatly in composition and in microscopic appearance depending on what is causing them. The photographs that Fisher has captured demonstrate the variants in tears in beautiful fashion. From tears of joy to onion tears, each tear tells a different story that says something different about the human experience. Fisher calls the project, “The Topography of Tears.”

All tears contain the same essential building blocks—oils, enzymes, and antibodies that are suspended in a salt water solution. Each tear, however, contains differing amounts of these elements, and salt molecules can crystallize in unique formations. This means that two tears stimulated by the same trigger could look radically different.

Fisher writes, “Tears are the medium of our most primal language in moments as unrelenting as death, as basic as hunger, and as complex as a rite of passage. The are the evidence of our inner life overflowing its boundaries, spilling over into consciousness. Wordless and spontaneous, they release us to the possibility of realignment, reunion, catharsis: shedding tears carries a microcosm of the human experience, like one drop of an ocean.”
