What Good Is Half An Eye?

Some people who ask this question have a basic misconception. They are thinking of "half an eye" as if it were a half-built house.

The actual situation is that "half an eye" was just a low quality eye. The animal could see half as well as animals do today.

So, there are two things to discuss. First, is poor vision useful? And second, does slightly better vision give an advantage?
