My eyes have only moderately good bokeh

My thought for the day ... (yeah I know, a bit off-topic)

I am myopic (short sighted) and when I take off my specs I live in a world of bokeh. Most of this is a satisfyingly creamy blur, but point lights become ugly patchy circles of a type that I have never seen in a photograph.

The cornea (front element) does most of the focusing, the actual lens (rear element) in your eye just does the final tweaking. If I ever have a cataract op then I may be able to tell you which element is responsible for this patchy bokeh.
