Lens of the Eye
The biconvex lens (AD27) is made up by elongated epithelial cells, the lens fibers, which show a lamellar arrangement. The ends of the fibers push against each other at the anterior and posterior surfaces of the lens; in the newborn, they form a three-pointed star (E) at their border. The lens fibers are continuously being formed throughout life.
