The near point of
The eye defect called Hypermetropia is corrected by using a convex lens spectacles.
We will first calculate the focal length of the convex lens required in this case. For hypermetropic eye can see the nearby object kept at 25 cm (at near point if normal eye) clearly if the image of this object is formed at its own near point which is 1 meter here. So, in this case :
Image distance, v = -1 m (Near point of this defective eye) = -100 cmFocal length, f= ? (To be calculated)
Putting these values in the lens formula,
By putting in values
We get :
Power of Lens needs to be Calculated ,
Given by P=
∴ We convert 33.3 cm into meter i.e 0.33m
= +3.0 D
Thus, the power of convex lens required is +0.3 diopters.
