How exactly does one get bad eyesight? Some say it is by reading so much, which would suggest that people who wear glasses should get better grades. But is that true?
Do people who wear glasses tend to be more academically talented?
- Test subjects: at least 50 who wear glasses at least 50 who do not wear glasses (keep the amounts equal)
- Pen/paper for notes
- Survey test subjects in your area or your school. Ask them two questions: a) What is their GPA (grade point average)? b) Do they wear glasses or contact lenses?
- Compare the average GPA of people who wear glasses to people who do not wear glasses. Is there a dramatic difference?
- Evaluate your results.
