We all have beautiful eyes and some of us have vision problems that affect the quality of our vision, while others are able to see clearly even as they age. However, we all have a limited range of vision and are unable to see objects beyond a certain distance.
Veronica Seider, a superhuman with remarkable powers, was born in West Germany in 1951. She attended school and later enrolled at Stuttgart University in her home country.
Veronica Seider's eyes had a superhuman ability that allowed her to see and recognize people from a mile away, breaking the traditional limits of human vision. Her eyes were like those of an eagle, giving her extraordinary visual abilities.
Veronica Seider – The Woman With Eagle Eyesight
After conducting vision tests, the University of Stuttgart reported that one of their students, Veronica Seider, possessed extraordinary eyesight and was able to identify and detect a person from 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) away. This is 20 times better than the average person's vision and the best vision ever reported. At the time of the tests, Veronica was 21 years old.
She had visual acuity of 20/2, which is much better than the normal human range of 20/20. She was able to quickly recognize individuals from a mile away and calculate their relative distance. Additionally, she was able to identify objects at a microscopic level. Because of her superhuman vision, she was recognized in the Guinness World Record Book in 1972.
Veronica Seider's vision was also described as being similar to that of a telescope. She claimed to be able to see the individual colors that make up a frame on a colored television display.
According to science, any color is made up of three primary colors: red, blue, and green. Normal eyes see color as a combination of these primary colors in varying quantities. Unfortunately, people who are blind are unable to know what hues they are seeing.
Veronica Seider had the ability to see colors in terms of their components: red, blue, and green. This is a highly unusual ability and while it may be classified as superhuman, it is also considered a genetic abnormality.
What Is The Reason Behind Veronica Seider's Superhuman Eyesight?
The typical human eye has a resolving ability of 100 microns (0.0003 radians) at a distance of 25 cm. One micron is equal to one thousandth of a millimeter, so 100 microns is about one-tenth of a millimeter, which is a very small size (comparable to a dot on a sheet of paper).
However, the average eye can still see even smaller objects if they are bright enough and the right environmental conditions exist. For example, a bright star that is billions of light-years away can be seen by an average eye. Some stars or other bright light sources that are only 3 to 4 microns across can also be seen by the average eye, which is very small.
Enhanced Abilities Of Veronica Seider
Veronica Seider's extraordinary visual ability is considered a paranormal mystery. She was able to write a 10-page letter on the back of a postage stamp and read it clearly, thanks to her powerful eyesight.
Veronica Seider demonstrated her visual abilities by tearing a piece of paper the exact size of her fingernail and writing 20 verses of a poem on it. She died on November 22, 2013 at the age of 62, and it was believed that even in her old age, her vision was significantly superior to that of any other human.
Despite having superhuman abilities, Veronica chose to pursue her ambition of becoming a dentist in West Germany and preferred to live a normal life as much as possible. She always chose to remain anonymous.
Is It Possible Today To Have "superhuman" Eyesight Like Veronica Seider Through An Advanced Eye Surgery?
The answer is both "yes" and "no." It is not currently possible to naturally have exceptional vision like Veronica Seider's through biological means. The visual acuity of a human is limited by the number of rods and cones, which are photoreceptor cells located on the outer layer of the retina.
Rods are responsible for vision in low light (scotopic vision) and do not contribute to color vision. They have low spatial acuity. Cones are active in higher light levels (photopic vision) and are responsible for color vision and high spatial acuity. It is not possible to increase or decrease the number of these photoreceptors through any kind of eye surgery.
However, there is a company called Ocumetics Technology Corp that is developing a bionic lens that may be able to achieve this. If you can currently just barely see a clock at 10 feet away, the Bionic Lens is claimed to allow you to see it from 30 feet away.
A person with 20/20 vision would be able to read text clearly from a distance of 60 feet, which is longer than the length of a basketball court. The sharpness and clarity of vision with the Bionic Lens is expected to be unparalleled.
The Ocumetics Bionic Lens, which is designed to give humans superhuman vision, was developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in Canada. Dr. Webb sought to enhance human eyesight regardless of age or health.
The procedure to implant the Ocumetics Bionic Lens is similar to cataract surgery. It involves removing the original lens and replacing it with the Bionic Lens, which is folded into a syringe in a saline solution and injected directly into the eye.
The Ocumetics Bionic Lens is currently undergoing clinical testing with the goal of achieving clinical approval. As of April 2019, the company had successfully adapted the design of the lens for mass production.
Many people desire the ability to see clearly at all distances without the need for glasses or contact lenses, and this technology may make that a reality in the near future.
