Could Our Eyes Really Have Evolved? Absolutely, and Here’s How

One of the common questions you hear from critics of evolution is “What use is half an eye?” As if something as complex as the human eye couldn’t possibly have evolved step by step through natural selection. (Worth noting: Half an eye is still pretty damn useful. And human eyes are notoriously awful.)

Needless to say, this is a horrible argument for “irreducible complexity” since there are great explanations out there for how our eyes developed.

In a neat video produced by optical lenses distributor Essilor and narrated by science communicator Alom Shaha, we learn about the evolution of the eye through some nifty animation:
