Physics Ex-54 Click The optical power of a lens is a measure of how much the lens bends light. The greater the optical power, the more the lens bends light. Note that the optical power is the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. The symbol for the optical power of a lens is P and the unit for the optical power is dioptres and is designated by the Greek symbol “  ”. Low optical powerHigh optical power More bendingLess bending

Physics Ex-54 Click The optical power of a lens is the reciprocal of its focal length.
