The power of the eye-lens of the normal eye where it is focused at its far point and at the near point respectively is  (Assume distance between retina from eye-lens to be 2.5cm) (PLEASE SOLVE IT IN DETAIL, especially in sign convention used here...)

Object at far point

we have lens equation ,  (1/v) - (1/u) = 1/f  ...............(1)

v = lens-to-image distance = 2.5 cm , u = lens-to-object distance = -∞

Hence from eqn.(1), we get 1/f = 1/2.5 + (1/ ∞ ) , i.e., f = 2.5 cm

Power of lens = 1/f  , if focal length f is expressed in meter

Hence power of eye lens when focussing far point object = 1/ ( 0.025 ) = 40 diopter
---------------------------------------

For near point object,  u = -25 cm , v = 2.5 cm

(1/v) - (1/u) = 1/f

(1/2.5) + (1/25) = 1/f   or    f = 25/11 = 2.27 cm

power of eye lens = 1/0.0227≈ 44 diopter
