Assertion (A): Concave lens is used to correct myopia  or short- sightedness.  

Reason (R): A concave lens of suitable focal length  diverges the parallel rays from the distant objects  as if they are coming from the far point of the  myopic eye. This helps the eye lens to form a clear image at the retina.  

 

Answer

 

  • A person with myopia can see nearby objects clearly but cannot see distant objects distinctly. 
  • A concave lens of suitable focal length  diverges the parallel rays from the distant objects as  if they are coming from the far point of the myopic  eye. This helps the eye lens to form a clear image at the retina

So, a concave lens is used to correct myopia  or short- sightedness.
