Diopter

Close-up lenses (which screw into the front of an existing lens and act like a reading glass) are often marked in 'diopters' (2.5 diopter close-up lens) The diopter value of a lens is calculated by taking the reciprocal of the focal length expressed in meters. Each diopter is the number of times the focal length of the lens will divide into one met...
