Solution

## (a) Defect in visionMyopia is the defect, in this defect the person is unable to see distant objects.(b) Focal length of the corrective lens$P=-4.5D$$⇒f=\frac{1}{P}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒f=\frac{1}{-4.5D}$$⇒f=-0.22m$(c) The nature of the corrective lens The nature of the corrective lens is a concave lens.Hence, the defect is myopia, $f=-0.22m$ and the concave lens is the nature of the lens.
