Data Set Information:

The aim of this dataset is to study the impact of personal lifestyle and genetic on eye refractive errors. This dataset is gathered from forms filled by 467 individual. First sheet contains information of 210 people suffering from eye refractive errors and the second sheet contains the information of the remaining 257 participants, who had a healthy eye condition. For being more precise, we asked participants, who had refractive errors, to fill information about their lifestyle before being affected by eye refractive errors.

Attribute Information:

Attributes ending by _B indicate the past lifestyle for individuals with refractive error.
