A student has difficulty reading the blackboard while sitting in the last row. What could be the defect the child is suffering from? How can it be corrected?
As the student is not able to clearly see the words written on the blackboard that is at a distance of approximately 4 m from him, the student is suffering from the defect called myopia or near-sightedness. A myopic eye has its far point nearer than infinity. It forms the image of a distant object in front of its retina. To correct a myopic eye, concave lens of a suitable focal length is used. The image is allowed to form at the retina by using a concave lens of suitable power.
