Lenses

  • A lens is a thin transparent piece of glass or plastic that has at least one curved side

    • The sides can be concave, convex or both


Lenses1

Lenses

  • A lens changes the direction in which light

    • If the light rays come together it is a converging lens, if the rays move apart it is a diverging lens


Our eyes have lenses

Our eyes have lenses

  • Our eye uses a lens to focus an image of an object on the retina of the eye

  • The brain then interprets that image (one more “flip”)


Vision correction using lenses

Vision correction using lenses

Diverging lens – used to correct short-sightedness

Converging lens – used to correct farsightedness


Converging lens

Converging lens

  • Because light can travel in both directions through a lens there are two focal points – one on either side of the lens


Converging lenses

Draw a straight line through the centre of the converging lens – this is the axis of symmetry

Drawing ray diagrams

Drawing Ray Diagrams

  • Step 1

    • Draw a straight line (the axis of symmetry) through the centre of the lens perpendicular to the principal axis

    • An incident ray drawn parallel to the principal axis will refract through the focus on the other side of the lens
