What is the significance of Piggy's glasses?

Piggy is the most intelligent and rational boy in the group. His glasses can represent the power of science and intellectualism in society. The symbolism of the glasses is clear from the start when the boys use them to focus the sunlight and start a fire.

Similarly, you may ask, how does Piggy die in the Lord of the Flies?

Ralph, who hears the rock falling, dives and dodges it. But the boulder strikes Piggy, shatters the conch shell he is holding, and knocks him off the mountainside to his death on the rocks below. Jack throws his spear at Ralph, and the other boys quickly join in.
