I recently got a new pair of glasses – a long overdue update that’s been a little like getting a retina screen upgrade. This newfound clarity, while very practical, has gotten me wondering how ‘natural’ it is, and to what extent it’s actually desirable. The high definition is great for my long distance vision but within a meter or two I’m happier not wearing anything. At a restaurant table I find it more pleasant to just have my fellow diners in focus. It’s gotten me thinking about Peter Grunwald’s investigations into the relation of the eyes to the rest of the body.
