The image formed by a concave lens is virtual and upright. It is smaller than the object and is formed between the object and the lens, irrespective of the position of the object. If, by mistake, an eye surgeon puts a concave lens in place of eye lens in a patient's eye, then the image will not be focused on the retina; this will lead to unclear vision.
