The Camp was successfully completed and the children’s were prescribed with new glasses and some of them were referred to clinic for further eye examination As we observed post covid most of the children’s are newly getting glasses due to more screen time and vigorously rubbing their eyes so the students were advised not to rub their eyes and take mini interval breaks while doing some near work .they were also advised to follow 20-20-20 rule and play under sunlight for at least 2 hours in a day .
