1), the father of geometry, published a work on light, vision, and optics called Optics and Catoptics. In it he said that light traveled in straight lines, and he discussed reflection. He also believed that our eyes emitted rays that enabled vision (known as the emission theory of vision). Euclid was such a wellrespected authority that his theory was still accepted 400 years later when Ptolemy (c. ), wrote A Work on Optics that expanded on Euclid’s original hypotheses.
