Optics is a branch of physics that explores light and its behaviors and interactions with objects. Lenses, which are made of transparent materials (usually glass), are curved objects that are used for focusing or spreading out (dispersing) light. Cameras, eyeglasses, and microscopes use lenses in a variety of ways to help us magnify, clarify or change how we see things. Depending on the type of lens, images can be flipped, magnified, blurred, or otherwise altered.
How can a magnifying glass change image orientation?
