So I've read, it was stated that the lenses in the eyes of both birds and mammals are "better positioned" compared to the lenses of reptiles' eyes.

The statement was found Bird vision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_vision) in this article. It's a very bold, and questionable statement, as I could find no information to give some weight to it.

For those who know better about general reptile anatomy, should this statement be presumed ambiguous until further notice? Or is it valid? I'm leaning towards presuming it questionable until further notice because of the lack of information I've found on "better positioned lenses." I do realize, however, internet quite often =/= textbook, so I could very well be wrong.

I would suggest not using wikipedia for information. I could post on there that leopard geckos come from Antartica and only eat sea lions, but we both know this is not true. It would be very cool, but still false.

I would assume that a CB price for Leopards would be really high when you figure in the expense of feeder sea lions

Indeed. :P Maintaining the feeders themselves would be a huge ordeal too.
