Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
The main eyes of flies are made up of huge number of small eyes.So each dot you see on the eye structure is one eye.Its like hundreds of miniature cameras all synced up and transmitting images constantly.

Due to this structure,flies see a combination of a mosaic. They dont see a clear image,but a mosaic of images. They see us as stop animation subjects like frozen images moving in between.
We hope that clarifies your query.
