Optics, Aesthetics, and the Transhuman Era

You know, if through genetic engineering or some nanotechnological miracle cure all of humanity is gifted with perfect vision, there won't be any more girls with glasses.

This makes me sad.

4 Don't worry, you'll be genetically modified so that this makes you happy instead of sad.

5 Be of good cheer, for with the stigma of physical imperfection removed, glasses will be free to become the pure ornaments to the (female) face that they can be. Besides, in-glasses HUD will arrive before direct neural links, so perfect eyesight won't eliminate all use for them.
