Problem 12CQ

Prescriptions for vision correction are given in units called diopters (D). Determine the meaning of that unit. Obtain information (perhaps by calling an optometrist or performing an internet search) on the minimum uncertainty with which corrections in diopters are determined and the accuracy with which corrective lenses can be produced. Discuss the sources of uncertainties in both the prescription and accuracy in the manufacture of lenses.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1</p>

Dioptre is the unit of the power.

It is a power of converging or diverging a beam of rays.

power is the reciprocal of focal length.
