to give an example to make it more clear:
we have a diploid cell with an allele for blue eyes and brown eyes. In meiosis 1 the DNA doubles and homologgues chromosomes come together and they separate
--> thus: blue will go to one cell (2 alleles) en brown goes to the other cell (2 alleles)
--> these cells have normal amount of DNA, but contain only 1 allele and are thus haploid.
Next, in meiosis 2, the amount of DNA halves and it's just like a mitosis.
