Default Glasses

I Have a Project idea of demonstrating how the eye glasses work. Would this be a good idea for a middle school project? We are only allowed to experiment with things. We arn't allowed to create something. What do you suggest?

Yes I think that it is a wonderful project. Try doing something with different perscriptions of glasses.

Age 12 Grade 7 And if you think that this is a good enough project for me then please help me figure out how to experiment with it. I need to make sure that there is only 1 Variable.

hopefully, I'm not too late...

Here it is... there are two types of lenses. Concave and convex. Do you know what a focal point is? Well, lenses have focal points, where the image comes together, and is where you can see. Glasses work like this--usually, what you see is focused unto your retina (the screen in the back of your eyes, where sensors of light captures what you see), so the focal point is the retina. When one is far sighted or near sighted, the focal point is either too far back of the retina, or too front of the retina. So the picture becomes blurry. When you're near sighted, the focal point is in front of the retina. When you're far-sighted, it's behind the retina. You can experiment with different perscription lenses and check the focal point of each, or compare the difference between far and near-sighted lenses.
