Here’s How Your Teardrops Look Like Under A Microscope

Our teardrops may not be that interesting but within these small beads of saltiness and sorrows there is seem to be some fairly interesting stuff that’s happening.

With his knowledge in medical science, a Dutch photographer named Maurice Mikkers, has generated a final sequence providing a close up look on an array of teardrops known as “The Imaginarium of Tears.”

The task began with a few good old fashioned scientific curiosity and on a Medium article post, Mikkers stated,

Science claims that each tear has a unique and viscosity. All tears have a number of natural materials including antibodies oils and enzymes suspended in saltwater. But can this relate solely to the’ real world.’”

You will find three various kinds of tears. Emotional tears which are related to feelings of disappointment or pleasure; reflex tears which are derived from irritation of the eye; and the basal tears which is normally acts as a moisturizer that helps keep the eye lubricated and healthy.

Mikkers have wanted to observe for himself whether these each had visible variations when placed directly under a microscope. He spent an evening with some of his buddies experimenting, where he caused them to shed off some tears – through onion exposure, eating red hot chili or thru sadness or joy. After gathering the drops using a micropipette, he then mound them onto a microscope slide and leave them to crystallize for some moments.

Though there have been no obvious noticeable patterns between the various kinds of tears, Mikkers were able to seize the different and varying structures of the tears’ salt crystals.

So I believe it is safe to say that the variations in tears which are observed aren’t displaying variations between the origins of crying… Nonetheless they’re stunning to appear at,” he concluded.
