Short Note

Solve the following example.
Doctor has prescribed a lens having power +1.5 D. What will be the focal length of the lens? What is the type of the lens and what must be the defect of vision?

Solution

Given:
Power of lens, P = +1.5 D
Now, focal length of lens, $f = \frac{1}{P} = + \frac{1}{1 . 5} = + 0 . 67 m$
Since, the focal length is positive, the lens prescribed for correction is convex lens. Thus, the defect of vision is farsightedness or hypermetropia.

Concept: Eye Defect and its correction: Hypermetropia or far-sightedness
