Pronunciation: [kɹˈɪstɐlˌa͡ɪn lˈɛnz] (IPA)

The crystalline lens is a transparent, biconvex structure located in the eye that helps to focus light onto the retina. It is also known as the lens of the eye, the ocular lens, or simply as the lens. Other synonyms for the crystalline lens include the vitreous humour, the refractive lens, or the intraocular lens.
