    How would i know whether something is going out of the page, into the page etc. Additionally does it matter for optical isomers? (e.g. if i draw two going out of the page and two in the plane of the paper and reflect it showing that they are isomers?)

    Carbons with no double bonds are tetrahedral. They'll have two in-plane bonds, one forward bond and one backward bond.
