Abstract

The lens is a fine tuning refractive structure that focuses sharp image on the retina for acute vision by virtue of its curvature. Hence, the present study was undertaken to explore the gross and histomorphological details of lens in Murrah buffaloes as there is paucity of literature in buffaloes. The study was performed on 20 pairs of eyeballs of Murrah buffaloes. The lens was a slightly yellowish, transparent, biconvex disc, found between the iris in front and the vitreous body behind. It was completely enclosed within a very thin capsule. The zonulary fibers were attached to the equatorial portion of the lens holding the lens in proper position. The lens epithelium was simple cuboidal epithelium, which was situated beneath the capsule. The lens was composed of a softer cortical substance and a dense central part, the nucleus of the lens. The lens substance consisted of concentric laminae, arranged somewhat like the layers.
