So in 12 years time it was either that his eyesight didn't deteriorate (when it clearly should have), he didn't noticed that his eyesight was getting worse or he did and never wondered to question why. Take your pick, but all options suck.
But MS is a fully explained concept NOW, and this flashback is happening NOW. How do you fail to understand something so simple. Kishi has long since laid down the rules about how MS works and the side effects (blindness) you get after awakening it. Is there even a single person that denies that after awakening MS blindness starts to happen. That's been 100% confirmed. Yet this chapter completely ignores it in kakashi's case. I'll tell you point blank, kakashi should have been blind before the series even started going by this chapter.
There is confusion, these rules apply to 'regular' Uchiha, Sasuke, Itachi, Madara, and Izuna. Obito is an Uchiha combined with Harashirma DNA since he left the cave. That being the case I could understand why Obito/Tobi dosen't have the blindness issue, can change sharingans like nothing thats why he has 100+, and because the eye is from Obito, and Kakashi isn't an Uchiha, the old rules don't apply to them obviously. I don't know why, but as Mibs would say...Those Fucking Magic Eyeballs.
