Darwinism Twice Undone by Trilobites' Eyes

Mesonacis vermontanus trilobite, image by Sam Gon III [1]

Darwin believed that the first eyes were simple and imperfect. He did believe that complex and perfect eyes are a product of evolution. [2]

This evolution is non-existent, however, in the fossil record: trilobites equipped with perfect eyes are found very close to the bottom of the stack of sedimentary layers. 

What is more important, though, is that different Cambrian trilobites have eyes of two different types. [3] From nowhere, without any evolutionary prehistory, two types of complex and perfect optics appear simultaneously. 

Each of the both types of eyes would be enough to overthrow Darwinism, seeing they lack any evolutionary history. And together they render Darwinism twice undone. 

“In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” (2Co.13:1)

[2] "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances … could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree. …

Reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a simple and imperfect eye to one complex and perfect can be shown to exist, each grade being useful to its possessor, as is certainly the case …then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered as subversive of the theory."
