Lens capsule

The eye?s lens consists of tightly packed layers of transparent protein fibres contained within an elastic capsule. During cataract surgery, the layers of lens fibres are removed, but the posterior part of the lens capsule and its supporting zonular fibres are retained to act as a support for the lens implant.
