What is the procedure for students who wear spectacles, especially during water activities?
As per the packing list, students wearing spectacles or sunglasses are encouraged to bring spectacles bands to secure their spectacles and bring extra pair of spectacles where possible.
Securing spectacles or sunglasses during water activities is important to prevent them from getting lost or damaged. Here are some tips on how to secure them:
Use an eyewear strap: Attach an eyewear retainer to the ends of the spectacles or sunglasses. These straps are typically made of neoprene or other water-friendly materials and can be worn around the back of the head or neck. They help keep the eyewear in place, even during active water activities.
Choose a floating eyewear strap: Consider using a floating eyewear strap if there's a chance the eyewear could fall into the water. These eyewear straps have buoyant properties, ensuring that the spectacles or sunglasses stay afloat if they accidentally come off.
DIY eyewear strap: Students may request for cotton twine from their instructors to DIY their own eyewear strap.
Even with the above precautions, accidents can happen. As part of their personal responsibility to care for own belonging, students are to be mindful of their eyewear during water activities and take additional steps to minimize the risk of loss or damage. As per the packing list, students wearing spectacles or sunglasses are also encouraged to bring extra pair of spectacles where possible.
