Cataract Impaired Lens In Eye May

A cataract-impaired lens in an eye may be surgically removed and replaced by a manufactured lens. The focal length required for the new lens is determined by the lens-to-retina distance, which is measured by sonar like device, and by the requirement that the implant provide for correct distant vision.
(a) Assuming the distance from lens to retina is 22.4 mm, calculate the power of the implanted lens in diopters.
(b) Because no accommodation occurs and the implant allows for correct distant vision, a corrective lens for close work or reading must be used. Assume a reading distance of 33.0 cm and calculate the power of the lens in the reading glasses.
