Question

A person got his eyes tested by an optician. The prescription for the spectacle lenses to be made reads :
Left eye : +2.50 D
Right eye : +2.00 D

Which lens bends the light rays more strongly?

Solution

Power is inversely proportional to focal length; therefore, shorter focal length will mean strong bending. Hence, lens for left eye will bend light rays more strongly.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
