The sections were selected to show the organization and relations of parts of the eye in the various age groups. The lens remains nearly spherical throughout this period and occupies a relatively large part of the eye. In front of the lens the pupillary membrane develops and the anterior chamber emerges. The hyaloid plexus partly fills the primitive vitreous humor of the eye and forms a network on the posterior surface of the lens. X60.
