Here’s how it might play out.

The Great Escape, a World War II thriller, is often thought of as one of the all-time great war films. But what if poor eyesight had rendered Capt. Virgil Hilts, played by Steve McQueen, less capable of finding his way on a motorcycle?

As you might recall, the folks at Visian ICL recently highlighted the fact that that big-screen heroes and villains tend to have good vision.
