Abstract

The lens in the eye has a biconvex form, it is avascular, elastic and represents a transparent structure that is located in the frontal plane at 3 to 4 mm behind the cornea. Anatomically the lens is distinguished by two main parts: a crust that has soft consistency and constitutes the peripheral elastic region and a nucleus that has a firm consistency and constitutes the central region. There is no clear border between the bark and the nucleus, the bark gradually crossing into the nucleus by passing from the poison to depth. The nucleus is formed after 25 years, gradually with age it is enlarged and strengthened at the expense of the elastic cortex. About 45 years the nucleus begins to sclerotize which reduces its elasticity as well as the ability for accommodation. The lens is normally transparent, any congenital or acquired blurring of the nucleus or bark with or without prominence of visual acuity is called cataract.
