Anatomy of the Eye (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The lens is a clear, flexible structure that is located just behind the iris and the pupil. A ring of muscular tissue, called the ciliary body, surrounds the lens and is connected to the lens by fine fibers, called zonules. Together, the lens and the ciliary body help control fine focusing of light as it passes through the eye. The lens, together with the cornea, functions to focus light onto the retina.
