The power of a lens depends on the differences in the refractive indices of the environment and the lens material. A glass lens immersed in water will loose power (a positive lens will focus at a greater distance). (This is for normal glass with refractive index greater than water - there could be glasses with refractive index less than water in which case the lens would gain power)
