To see underwater

Our eyes do not perform well underwater. We have problems processing images in this environment. Unprotected, they are exposed to contact with impurities that can irritate or even damage them. But would diving with eyes shut really make sense? Diving is not only pleasure derived from a controlled neutral buoyancy, but also the opportunity to experience a completely different, sometimes hostile world. The history of diving is long. In fact, we never parted from the water. This environment guarantees us safety even before we learn how to breathe the air. Curiosity is certainly one of the most important reasons which pushes people underwater; maybe another is the desire to experience the reception specific soundproofing that remains only in the subconscious mind?
