    um your eyes are developed at 7 ? ok no because i had my dads blue eys until i was 8 then they turned green at 13 and they are still green and my mom had brown eyes that turned hazel so no . not all eyes are developed in color at 7 not for me at least .

      Color isn’t development. Getting a tan doesn’t mean your skin is developing. My eyes changed color in high school. Granted, my vision has been getting better since I turned 25. The Optometrists all say that’s very weird, though. There are always exceptions, I guess. But color and development are not the same thing.

    These are not facts, the human body is an amzingly powerfull machine, with the ability to adapt and become stronger in the right training and circumstances, for example my dad was an electrition by profession with a high fascination with technology, he regularly worked with tiny components which would need very good eyesight and hand eye co-ordination, my father is now 50 years of age and he has better eyesight than most people half his age with the ability to easily see small things and with no difficulty refocusing to any change in distances. I am 18 years old and with lots of mental concentration, a balanced diet, and rigorous training, my eyesight continues to improve at a steady rate, and do not tire under copious amounts of reading, using the computer etc. If you understand the body, you know that the ability to focus and readjust to distances is controlled by the cillary musle located in your eye near the lenz, with age this muscle becomes weak and the ability to readjust to change in distance is lessened, but like all muscles it can become strong with the right exercise and the right nourishment.
    Tip: Eat a carrot every day to increase the sharpness of your vision.

      I’m 15 and my eyesight is very good. I do keep myself in shape but I do spend a lot of time on the computer. I have 20/13 vision.
