Expert Answer:

"Crystalline lens " is a transparent, biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea, helps to refract light to focus on the retina. Its function is similar to a man-made optical lens; the lens sits behind the iris and is supported by the zonule, which connects it to the ciliary body; the lens is an avascular structure.
