But like everything related to our vision, amblyopia is certainly complex term both to delimite and define. What does it exactly mean to ‘see right’? At present, I am writing this text as I see it through my computer screen, which has a resolution way higher than that of the analogue television we used to watch during our childhood years. But higher resolution undoubtly involves more information that needs to be captured by our sight and later processed by our brains.  Just like it happens when comparing old gravure printing techniques with high-end image printing processes from the present time, the reproduction of certain details in the image and the range of colorous and tones prensent in contemporary photographic prints are often wider than those which the human eye is able to perceive. But would have short-sighted people had the need to use spectacles two centuries ago? Or was the level of deail present in printed (and painted) material vague enough to be perceived by a much larger scope of the population?
