Focal length and lens power (measured in diopters) are reciprocal measurements. This calc allows conversion in either direction, by the use of the units menu. Occasionally, other quantities (such as spherical curvature) are also measured in diopters. This calc may also be used under these circumstances.

Results
Based on your score, you lead a healthy lifestyle, which does not increase the risk of vision impairment.
Example: We define vision impairment in terms of visual acuity , e.g. 20/40. An eyesight of 20/40 means that you need to be 2 meters from a road sign to see it, instead of the usual 4 meters.
Health tips 👀
A balanced diet, regular exercise and not smoking are the keys to health, part of which is good vision.
✔️ Screen time - it's good that you don't spend too much time in front of digital screens. Take care of your eyes with this simple trick:
➡️ Follow the 20-20-20 rule; every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to look at something that is 20 feet away.
✔️ Activity - you're doing well, but there are some things you could improve:
➡️ Nice, you regularly go hiking, cycling, or even for a long stroll🚲. It doesn't have to be the Tour de France, but try to make them a bit longer than your current 2 hours per week.
➡️ Cardio and team sports every week must feel sooo good 😄 It'd be even better if it was more than 2 hours in a week.
➡️ Given the result of your household activities , we'd all like to learn your quick clean-up secrets 😍. Still, how about extending it to more than 2 hours a week?

NNT

Standard equations are used to calculate NNT and other probabilities from the rsults of a medical study.

Tile

Assuming square tiles, the number you need to cover an area is found. If tiles need to be cut, then each part-tile is counted as 1 tile. If the number or area per pack is entered, then the number of packs required is also calculated.
