In my textbook when talking about magnification, said "You will notice that there is slightly greater magnification when the image is focussed at the near point of the eye [i.e 25cm] than when the eye is relaxed and the image is at infinity."

I assume they are talking about angular magnification.

How is this true?

The first question is how do you get a magnification if the image is at infinity? Because you can't locate where the image is hence can't measure an angle either?
