How does a Fish See in the water
Fish have eyes similar to humans, but they also have protective film over their eyes so that they can see more clearly underwater. … Their eyes have rod & cone cells on their retinas, so we know that they can see color as well as in shades of grey, light and dark. All fish have some level of night vision, although some species like walleyes are much better than others at seeing in the dark. … Fish have these same chemicals and other chemicals in their eyes that allow them to see some ultra-violet frequencies as well. Fish don’t have eyelids — they don’t need them underwater because dust can’t get in their eyes. But fish still sleep.
