Interesting thought. But are you aware that the human eye and the squid eye have very very similar composition, Eerie shit.

I neevr said our difference was in how it works.
Squids are in that way more efficient, that the nervecords go other ways and are better aligned as with humans.
The problem with our nervecords is, that they run in front of our receptors.
Means that there is less space on the receptorwall and the light reaching it is somehwat lesser because they have to get through the nerves.
This is the cause for the blind spot a human eye has. We have a spot which should normally be in our field of view that we do not see.
The squid eye on the other hand evolved in the better, more efficient way.
The nervecords are running behind the receptorwall - not hindering the light, and not needing a blind spot.
Sorry if there are any linguistic-mistakes, I'm dead-tired and am too lazy to look up the vernacle for evolutionary biology. I may or may not be writing in complete nonsense. Short:
Squid-eyes don't have a blind spot like we humans have, because of the way the nerve-cords are aligned. Thus they are more efficient - and not of the same build as the human eye.
