WHY GEN-Z WEAR SPECTACLES AT A TENDER AGE
Members of our group always wondered why in every class in our school, a large number of students are wearing spectacles? This has been our observation right from primary classes. We as friends used to think about this and wondered why our parents much older and our cousins back in India who are much older to us are not using spectacles for reading. This we discussed with our teachers and wanted to know the various factors which make the student community of present generation wear glasses even at lower kindergarten classes. Our project will therefore involve study of children of our age group of our school wearing eye glasses and we shall compare the same with the students of neighboring schools and a school close to our residence in India. We would be interviewing students and their parents and collect data which will help us understand all the possible factors which we as students think are the possible causes for the defects of the human eyes. After we gather the data and analyze, we plan to meet a couple of leading ophthalmologists here in Kuwait and seek their opinion on this issue. We will then present our observations to the doctors and provide our interpretations and seek their advice. Doctors’ observations and their suggestions to the student community will be recorded and will be compared with our suggestions which will be purely based on the research we have done independently and the final conclusion will be reflected in the project. We shall try to provide a solution to our friends at school who otherwise are not wearing spectacles and advise them to so as keep their eyes healthy.
