What happens when corrective eye surgery becomes the same price as a pair of eyeglasses? How soon do you think this will happen... 5, 10, 20 years? A 700 year old invention will seem odd comparatively soon. Will it be a funny sight to see an old man still wearing glasses, when they have become a thing of the past? Will there be very few places that sell eyeglasses in the not-so-distant future? This all reminds me of yet another thing that is signaling the accelerating pace of human evolution.
