Have you ever thought how different tears in its composition

- Basal (provides constant “moisture” of the eyeball,
protecting from drying out and providing protection against infection).
- Reflex (in response to an irritant – a bright light, strong

Fisher engaged in the study of “emotionally colored” tears:
collected about hundreds of drugs and examined under the microscope.
It turned out that the same liquid may look diametrically
