Some of them realize that they can not see properly on blackboard when they have to site at last bench, they think that other children’s are also not able to see it, they do not realize that they are nearsighted, until they are asked by school teachers to get their eye examined.

Now parents take them to an eye doctor who prescribes them spectacles and ask them to examine regularly after 6 months to one year. Every time they go for eye exam number is increased. When they ask doctor what preventive measures they should take so that number will stop increasing or go away, doctor has no answer. They are told or know from here and there that carrot juice is good for eyes, green vegetables are good for eyes, so now this parents religiously force their kids to drink carrot juice everyday till child or parent get fed up or child get nausea about carrot.
