Assume the lens-to-retina distance of the human eye is 2.00 cm.

Suppose the lens-to-retina distance of the human eye is
2.00 cm. 2.00 cm A) What is the power of the eyes, in diopters,
when viewing an object 35 cm away? (the answer is
NOT 47 or 50) in diopters 35 cm B) Calculate the power P, in diopters, of the eye when viewing
an object 5.5 m away?
5.5 m

A) Power in diopters,P = 1/f = 1/i +1/o = 1/0.35 + 1/0.02
= 52.86
B) Again P = 1/5.5 + 1/0.02 = 50.18
