Myopia Glasses and Optical Power Estimation: An Easy Experiment
ARTICLE

Physics Teacher Volume 53, Number 2, ISSN 0031-921X

Abstract

Human eye optics is a common high school physics topic and students usually show a great interest during our presentation of this theme. In this article, we present an easy way to estimate a diverging lens' optical power from a simple experiment involving myopia eyeglasses and a smartphone flashlight.
