Of the five senses, vision is the most astonishing. This is how we weave our way through the world. And although the eye has evolved over millions of years to give us crystal clear vision, it is a modern day phenomenon that, in evolutionary terms, our eyesight is going backwards. Due to presbyopia, we are now dependent on reading glasses for half our lives. In parts of East Asia up to 90% of school leavers are now short-sighted.
