Solution

Step 1: Given data

The power of the corrective lens prescribed to the patient by the doctor is P=+1.5D.

Step 2: Formula used

f=1P[wheref=focallength,P=power]

Step 3: Calculating the focal length

Substituting the value of P in the formula

f=1Pf=1+1.5f=0.67m

The focal length of the lens is 0.67m.

The focal length of the corrective lens is positive. The focal length of the converging lens is positive. So The prescribed corrective lens by the doctor is a converging lens.

Hence, the focal length of the corrective lens prescribed by the doctor to the patient is +0.67m . The prescribed corrective lens by the doctor is a converging lens.
