Use formula D=1/f

05. The unit of illuminance is:

a. Lumen
b. Lux (lumen per square metre)✓
c. Candelas (lumen per steradian)
d. Watts per steradian

Lumen is the unit for luminous flux, candelas (lumen per steradian) for luminous intensity and Watts per steradian for radiant intensity.

06. The spherical equivalent of a lens with power +3.00 DS/-2.00 DC is:

a. +1.00 DS
b. +2.00 DS✓
c. -5.00 DS
d. -1.00 DS

Spherical equivalent = sph+ cyl/2

07. Transpose the power -4.0DS/-3.00 DC x 45

a. -4.00 DS/+3.00 DC x 135
b. +4.00 DS/-3.00 DC x 135
c. -7.00 DS/+3.00 DC x 135✓
d. -7.00 DS/-3.00 DC x 135

08. Transpose +1.00 DS/+1.00 DC x 90 to toric formula with base curve -2 D:

a. +3.00 DS
---------------------
-2.00 DC x 180/-3.00 DC x 90
b. + 4.00 DS
------------------
-2.00 DC x 90/-3.00 DC x 180 ✓
c. +3.00 DS
---------------
-2.00 DC x 90/-1.00 DC x 180
d. +1.00 DS
---------------
-2.00 DC x 90/-3.00 DC x 180

09. The power -2.00DS/+1.5DC x 75 is

a. Simple myopic astigmatism
b. Compound myopic astigmatism✓
c. Compound hypermetropic astigmatism
d. Mixed astigmatism

If sph and cyl with different sign and cyl less than sph, it should be transposed first. The
above power becomes -0.5DS/-1.50DC 165
Mixed astigmatism occurs only if sph and cyl with different sign and cyl more than sph (eg -1.5DS/+2.0DC 90)

10. Which of the following is not a problem with spectacle correction of aphakia?

a. Image magnification
b. Ring scotoma
c. Pin-cushion distortion
d. Barrel distortion✓

Barrel distortion occurs with high minus lenses

11. infants are born with

A. Myopia
B. Hypermetropia✓
C. Astigmatism
D. Emmetropia

12. Simple myopia usually does not exceed

A. 9D
B. 3D
C. 6D✓
D. 12D

13. Which of the following is degenerative myopia

d. At infinity

19. In the absence of lens accommodation, a myopic eye focuses images:

a. in front of the lens
b. In front of the retina✓
c. behind the retina
d. Behind the cornea

20. Which of the following is a risk factor for retinal detachment?


a. black race
b. male sex
c. Hypermetropia
d. myopia✓

21. At 6m distance from the patient, the 6/6 letters shall subtend an angle of ________ in the eye .

a. 1 minutes of arc
b. 1 degree
c. 5 minutes of arc✓
d. 5 degrees
