A company has developed nontoxic oil paints. To investigate whether the paint adhesion depends on the roughness of the surface to be painted,

Identify whether the following study is a survey, an observational study, or an experiment.
Specially designed multifocal contact lenses have been shown to reduce the progression of nearsightedness in children. To investigate whether the obtained results depend on the age at which nearsighted children start wearing the contact lenses, a group of opticians analyzed their patient databank in terms of the age children started wearing the contact lenses and the progression of their nearsightedness after five years compared with nearsighted children who wore only glasses.
