    See

    Is this grammatically correct?

    "We use our eyes to see flowers."

    Thanks in advance.

    "We use our eyes to see flowers." It's grammatically correct, but it's an odd sentence. You can omit "flowers", because we use our eyes to see everything. But it still would be an odd sentence.
    'We see with our eyes.' and 'Our eyes allow us to see (things).' are more natural sentences.
    Thanks in advance.
