I have read in a lot of places that squirrels have excellent eyesight, but I think I'm missing something. I have had rescued squirrels that often had problems in finding food that was placed right in front of them. I don't know about long distance vision, but I don't believe that their vision is very good when viewing things up close. Their sense of smell, however, seems to be great.
