I accidentally took a photo of the inside of my cats eyeball.

How the fuck

I wish I knew! The flash on my phone was set to auto and this was the hellish result!

You just looked inside your cat's soul, it's just some sticks.

You can see the optic disc where the blood vessels come into do the eye.

Doctors actually use smartphones with a simple macro lens in the Third World to diagnose glaucoma. I never saw it on a cat though. :)

Edit: learn to proofread and stop trusting predictive keyboards. :/

Edit 2: This is what a basic Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner looks like.

Edit 3: This is what I'm talking about! https://www.reddit.com/sub/mildlyinteresting/comments/60g7wc/comment/df6a7yo?st=J0J87ZAP&sh=fe2ef5d0

Doctor here. It's amazing that he could get that with his phone.

Edit: someone explain to me why this comment with zero content made me over 900 upvotes?

/sub/interestingasfuck

Lmao I read that as vegetarian here and thought you were just being a stereotypical vegetarian

Veterinarian here. The tapetum lucidum is definitely contributing to the quality of the image.

Edit: for those wondering, the tapetum lucidum is the reflective tissue in the back of the eyes of many nocturnal animals which contributes to nightvision.

Edit II: I'm trying to answer as many biological/anatomical questions as I can (I'm on medical leave and have plenty of time). Education is my passion so please feel free to ask whatever you are curious about. I'll try and answer as many as I can! Remember: the only dumb question is the question unasked. Also feel free to PM me questions. I guarantee they will all be answered.

Tree surgeon here , That cat is not a tree.

A bundle of sticks?

Vegetarian here. It's a miracle he didn't eat that cat!

Just like OP!

Brb, going to creep the shit out of my cat

It's quite normal to me that this subreddit has the more interesting/unique posts than interestingasfuck

Cat eater here, I'm surprised he didn't eat the cat too

I'm getting sick and tired of seeing really cool shit on /sub/mildlyinteresting

Barista here. If you put that cat through a coffee grinder it would die.

It's a Flux Capacitor. This is what makes time travel possible.

Please post pictures of the claw marks across your face.

If you put your face really close to your cat's and stare it directly into its eyes, you can see this.

Fuck off Womble you prick

Charming

Thanks tree surgeon!

I feel like this is due to expectations and standards more than anything. I browse this subreddit to be mildly amused, not to have my mind blown. But sometimes... posts here blow my mind, and I quite enjoy it.

"Oh my god /sub/creepy! Theres a message in my Alphabits. It says oooooooooooo."

"...OP, those are Cheerios"

Joush here, I like muffins.

It's been a half hour. RIP brave soul. He did not go gently into that good night.

Cat here, meow

This is crazy! Definitely one of the coolest things I've seen on Reddit so far

Cat now blind

It's kind of how nothing on /sub/funny is funny.

Thank you! I'll be sure to let Simba the cat know her devil eye is cool and not scary!!

/sub/mildlyinfuriating ?

RIP to the all the cats of Redditors in the next 24 hours. Fucking seizures and flash blindness.

u/sovietwomble

The Flux Capacitor, of course! That's why cats don't abide by the laws of physics!

Fuck off Womble you prick

For the record, here is a non horrific picture of my sweet Simba, and her boofhead younger brother, Nucky!

Geologist here that cat is not a rock. It may or may not rock, not qualified to say.

Forklift driver here. I have absolutely no knowledge on this subject but felt the need to say something.

That is all.

Looks like Cataracts

You want to buy some death sticks?

There is sharingan, byakugan and now nekogan!!

The focus on the preflash and software saw in to the open Iris and snapped a photo of the vein inside the eyeball.

Night macro photography is a wondrous thing :)

Also cat.  Are you on tinder too?

edit: proof

edit 2: sample conversation

I did this. Cat scratched my eyes. Am blind now.

Shiny layer (Tapetum lucidum) behind the retina reflecting the green. Dark lines are blood vessels.

And so much of /sub/creepy is anything but....

Cats have no soul. That's proven scientifically and even the pope acknowledged it.

"oh look at this 17 minute ad, this is perfect content for /sub/mildlyinfuriating"

No god damn it, that isn't mildy infuriating at all. That would make my blood boil.

99% of content here and over there are not mild at all.

hence /sub/thecatdimension

Jk love you mate

You don't want to sell me death sticks.

I want to go home and rethink my life.

Here you go! Simba and her brother Nucky! Hope that worked alright!

Mom here, get off reddit!

You want to go home and rethink your life.

Rage rage against the dying of the light

I don't want to sell you death sticks

Pussy eater here, I'm surprised more people don't eat pussy.

You did accidental funduscopy

My (first world) eye doctor uses a big expensive machine to take similar picture of my eyes to determine if I have glaucoma or not. Much more convenient than dilating my eyes and he can layer pictures from previous years on top of the current picture to help determine if there's been any change.

So far I'm good. But I've got a family history of the disease and a thick cornea that gives pressure readings right at the top of normal. So while not completely covered by insurance, it's worth the extra out-of-pocket cost to me. Plus it's cool looking at the pictures each year.

Alf here, ready for take out

Can't tell if tree surgeon or lumberjack.

It was the cat o.O

So much just happened in like 30 seconds, you replied and I got 4 up votes. Its 10am on a Monday! What are we all doing?

Username checks out... I guess?

Not to be confused with /sub/interestingassfuck

We're all working. Dunno about you.

/sub/accidentalfunduscopy

Yes, if you want to be technical.

ELI5 please

It's 2.16am on Tuesday here.... I should be sleeping but I'm basking in my front page glory!

You will be responsible for all the idiot redditors blinding their cats today!

Or interest in gas fuck

Yeah I watch Family Guy too.

Schrödinger here, that cat could be both alive and dead.

It's a great day when we get intentional references.

Don't worry. I've had glaucoma for 40 years. A drop in each eye in the morning and a drop at night. Painless, generic drops. Pressure was 35, now 13mm in both eyes. Your mileage may vary, but it ran in my family too. As a bonus the Timolol drug is a beta-blocker and tends to lower your BP a little bit.

Yes, of course see a doctor, your might not be controlled with medication, but I think most people are.

I always feel stressed out when I'm trying to decide how interesting my posts are. Is this really mildly interesting, or is it not interesting at all? Is it interesting as fuck, or am I over confident? I don't know man, I don't know.

Im pooping.

Engineer here, that's definitely a cat.

Ha! Faggot!

I'm an expert on the subject myself. I can confirm that cats have no soul.

Bandwagon here. Still no end in sight for this chain.

Cat.

Cat.

Oh no!!! What a catastrophe!!!!!!

Very "creppy" indeed.

Guitar riff

Womble is a faggot

That's the "eyes glow in the dark" thing?

Is this why SovietWomble takes forever to upload is we distract him on Reddit?

control genjutsu, control chakra and control the master.

Name does not check out.

We're all working getting paid to reddit while at work.

She actually didn't even flinch! She was getting head scratches while I did this and head scratches are life.

Carpenter here, If you try this with a wooden carving of a cat it doesn't work.

Pupils are just holes in your iris that allow in light. Your flash entered directly into this hole and shows the interior of the eye just as shining a flashlight into a cave would show its interior.

Thank you for saving the lives of trees.
