This does not appear to be a slipup, but an inherent part of the script. The episode begins with Charles bragging about his super-human eyesight, and ends with him making an all-too-human mistake. The purpose of this subplot is to show that Charles is not the superhuman he envisions himself to be, perhaps "illuminating" his thinking.

He was just making an excuse for his mistake. What most likely happened was that he was so tired from work that his concentration was off and he misread the label. That has nothing to do with eyesight, just focus.
