Apparently there is a village in China where everyone has perfect vision. When people of that village spend time way for work, they start developing sight problems and get glasses. However, when they return home, their vision returns to normal after a few months. Supposedly, it’s because in the modern world, we spend so much time staring at things near us (computer screens, books, etc), whereas our eyes naturally want to spend a lot of time staring at intricate, branching structures like trees and also off into the far distance.
