Let us suppose that a person seating opposite to you at the table wears glasses. Can you determine whether the person is near-sighted or far-sighted.

Assumptions :-

Being a polite person, you would not ask that person to take out his glasses so that you can experiment on it.

TopNewestI will point a gun coloured like chocolate from 100 yards away, if he realises its a gun, then the glasses are either sun glasses or for seeing close objects, if he instead comes close thinking its chocolate, and later realises and runs,, then the opposite ,

Just kidding, i am not so cruel i will simply shoot him and check his glasses, whether convex or concave ,

Ok on a serious note, i liked ronak aggarwals idea,,

Yeah and that is the true solution. Try it on someone and it indeed is true but effects are measurable only if power is high

Can't we simply watch the eyes of the person whether they are enlarged or contracted then determine whether he is near sighted or far sighted.

Right, simple and easy and yet most people fail to answer this. Though its right, Make your answer more scientific, ronak.

Check his glasses. The kind of glasses he is wearing depends on whether he is near-sighted or far-sighted. Concave lens would mean he is near-sighted while convex would mean he is far-sighted.

How will you check the glasses, without touching. That is the basic question.
