Lens and aqueous humour

The lens of the eye is a clear flexible structure that is located just behind the iris and the pupil. The lens focuses the light as it passes through the eye onto the retina at the back of the eye. The aqueous humour (it means 'watery matter') is the fluid found just behind the cornea; its function is to nourish the lens.
