The eye defect illustrated in the diagram above can be corrected by a
The eye defect illustrated in the diagram is myopia, also known as nearsightedness. In myopia, the image is formed in front of the retina instead of on the retina, resulting in a blurred image of distant objects. To correct this defect, a diverging lens, also known as a concave lens, is used. The concave lens is thinner at the center than at the edges, which causes the light rays to diverge or spread out. When the diverging lens is placed in front of the myopic eye, the lens causes the light rays to diverge even more before they enter the eye. As a result, the image is shifted back towards the retina, allowing the myopic eye to focus on the object and produce a clear image.
