Eye Accommodation, Near Vision, and Far Vision from a Geometrical Optics Point of View


Physics & Engineering

Date of Activity



The eye should have a particular focal length in order to see an object. As there are many things to see, the focal length of the eye must vary because these things are not all at the same distance from the eye. We explore the eye accommodation from a geometrical optics point of view and present our results in this paper; the study includes a description of the accommodation mechanism and a scientific definition of near vision and far vision.
