Section D

23.There was a student suffering from an eye defect. In starting, for the long time he did not pay attention to his eye defect and therefore wasted that time, though he could have prepared for competitive examination, if he had given a thought for his eyesight correction. After few day he went to see an eye specialist who suggested him that he should wear spectacles to be fit and fine. He did the same, later he was in guilt and prayed his lost time to come back.

  • What decision should be taken on any issue related to health? Give reasons.
  • Name two kinds of common eyesight deffect in human eye.
  • What focal length should the reading spectacles have for a person, for whom the  least distance of distinct vision is 50 cm.
