When ciliary muscles are relaxed, focal length of eye lens is maximum . Why? Explain.
Asked by Madhuchhanda Chakraborty | 5th Oct, 2014, 10:29: AM
Eye lens of human eye is a convex lens. Being flexible, the eye lens can change its shape i.e. can become thin or thick to focus light on to the retina. The eye lens are held in position by the suspensory ligaments. One end of the suspensory ligaments is attached to the eye lens and the other end to the ciliary muscles . Ciliary muscles change the thickness of eye lens while focussing.
When the eye is looking at a distant object, then the ciliary muscles of the eye are fully relaxed and these relaxed ciliary mucles of the eye pull the suspensory ligaments attached to the eye lens tightly. The suspensory ligaments in turn pull the eye lens due to which the eye lens gets stretched and becomes thin .Thin eye lens has large focal length.Thus we can say that when the eye is relaxed, the interior lens becomes less rounded and the lens has its maximum focal length for viewing distant objects.

- Amit suffering from myopia is not able to see distantly the objects placed beyond five from his eyes. List possible reason due to which this defect of vision may have a rising. With the help of a diagram explain; (a) why the student is unable to see the objects placed beyond 5 metre. (b) type of corrective lens used to restore proper vision and how is defect is corrected by the use of this lens. (C) if in this case, the numerical value of the focal length of the corrective lens is 5 metre find the power of the lens as per the new cartesian sign convention
