this question still is unresolved for me Adrian, Dave
Pickett posted here that he concurred with me that the
squinting changes the shape of the eyeball, which we know
changes focus.  I did some experiments today with squinting
and with just stopping down the light entering the eye and
they both seem to affect my ability to focus at a distance.
