After being outside when it is sunny, why do you see green spots when you come inside?
Question Date: 2015-07-26
Answer 1:

It's because of saturation of the sensors you use to see light when you are outside. I do not know whether it is happening inside your eyes (it's the chemicals in your eye that detect light), or in your brain (the neurons that determine the colors that you see).
