Physics: The World through Everyone’s Eyes

Explanation:

I chose the key point of different levels of vision as my point to talk about for optics due to its effects on daily life. There are so many different forms of vision impairment. This subject truly stuck with me because I wanted to understand more about what causes farsightedness and nearsightedness. This subject applies to all lives, we’ve all met someone who is visually impaired in some way. I myself am not but I know a few people who are.
