It is contiguous with the white, tough, scleral wall of the eye, its clarity providing the transmission window for the images which are 18 Ocular Structures and their Function ultimately focussed onto the retina. The cornea has a shape which can best be likened to the underside of a teaspoon.

This process continues until a hollow lens vesicle forms. The primary vesicle is surrounded by a capsule. During lens development this basement membrane is continuously laid down by deposition of material from the adjacent epithelial cells until the definitive lens has formed. Soon after the formation of the lens vesicle the front and rear walls differentiate into dissimilar structures. While cells in the anterior (front) of the vesicle remain as a single layer of cuboidal epithelial cells, those at the posterior (back) terminally differentiate to form fibres.
