The Anatomy and Physiology of the Eye

Wordle: The Eye

The phrase "Love at first sight" is a real thing. The anatomy behind the phrase and studies suggest that when a person sees someone they are attracted to, their pupils will dilate. The brain releases a surge of dopamine ( which is a chemical that controls the reward and pleasure centers) that triggers pupil dilation. So when someone says "it's love at first sight" this is really what's happening.
