Question explanation:
"According to the passage, to correct nearsightedness, the laser beam is directed onto the central part of the cornea, resulting in a flattening of the cornea. This means that the radius of curvature of the cornea is increased."

How does flattening of the cornea increase the radius of curvature?

Thanks!

Hi Ezra,

Would you be able to supply the exam/Question Bank that you got this from? Ideally, if you can paste a screenshot of the image or copy and paste the text that would help us answer this question.

Thanks!
