The highest visual acuity (AKA best eyesight) ever recorded was actually in an unnamed Australian Aborigine man, part of a 1979 study that found Aborigines have much better eyesight on average than Europeans do. His visual acuity was 6/1.5, meaning that he could read an eye chart from 6 meters away as well as someone with "normal" vision could read it from 1.5 meters away.
Researchers believe that his visual prowess was due partly to genetics, and partly to using his distance vision so much - the man was a hunter in his community, and spent much of his time scanning long distances for minute signs of game.

Doctors from a number ophthalmology schools are reporting that Google Glass significantly reduces peripheral vision, blocking as much as 10 degrees of wearers' field of vision.
Dr. Tsontcho Ianchulev, lead researcher, was inspired to study the issue when he almost got into a car accident while wearing Glass himself.
Reduced peripheral vision is a serious problem when you're behind the wheel, or even just walking around. Seeing movement in your peripheral area generates an alert to possible danger and is the key to safely navigating the world.
The researchers let Google know about the problem, and it looks like a makeover is in store for Glass.

FY EYE! Orthokeratology: Improve Your Vision While You Sleep!
Orthokeratology is a non-surgical alternative for the correction of nearsightedness, astigmatism, hyperopia and presbyopia. Much like braces worn to realign the teeth, the lenses are worn during the night while you sleep and are removed when you wake, resulting in clear vision all day long without using glasses or contacts.

has been using custom Wave software for the last 8 years. This allows him to map & analyze the surface of the entire cornea and design a custom OK lens for each eye. Since no two corneas are alike, no two OK lenses in the entire planet can be the same. Each custom designed lens is like a fingerprint.
Research now shows that Orthokeratology
can slow the elongation of the eye, which contributes to progressive nearsightedness in children and adults. Ortho-K is ideal for adolescents whose myopia seems to progress on a yearly basis.
