    Dogs have poor vision; their eyes aren't sensitive to a majority of colors, and they see the world in a somewhat faded way. On the other hand, they can see very well at night. They have a well-developed sense of perspective and depth, and their eyes are more sensitive to movement.

    Flies have faceted vision. This can be comprehended in terms of having thousands of tiny eyes that work together to create one image. They can see ultraviolet rays, and the world moves somewhat slower for them compared to humans.
