Can a short-sighted person with no corrective appliance see an object more clearly than a person with no impediment, if the object is at an optimal distance for them (i.e. closer than the unimpaired person could tolerate)?
My thinking is that the short-sighted person can tolerate the object being closer, therefore has an advantage in the sense they will be absorbing more 'photonic information' (!?) about the object?
I was going to ask on healthcare.stackexchange but feels a bit more advanced, hence hope it's okay to ask as physics question.
