Résumé
In visual perception, the near point is the closest point at which an object can be placed and still form a focused image on the retina, within the eye's accommodation range. The other limit to the eye's accommodation range is the far point. A normal eye is considered to have a near point at about for a thirty year old. The near point is highly age dependent (see accommodation). A person with hyperopia or presbyopia would have a near point that is farther than normal. Sometimes, near point is given in diopters (see ), which refers to the inverse of the distance. For example a normal eye would have a near point of \frac{1}{11\ \text{cm}} = 9\ \text{diopters}. Vision correction A person with hyperopia has a near point that is further away than the typical near point for someone their age, and hence the person is unable to bring an object at the typical near point distance into sharp focus. A corrective lens can be used to correct hyperopia by imaging an obje
