The ciliary muscle is a muscle that affects zonules in the eye (fibers that suspend the lens in position during accommodation), enabling changes in lens shape for light focusing.
During the fetal stage, the development of the lens is aided by the hyaloid artery.
The aqueous humour is the clear, watery fluid that fills the complex space in the front of the eye which is bounded at the front by the cornea and at the rear by the front surface or face of the vitreous humour.

Refractive Lens Exchange at Stahl Vision, Dayton, Ohio.

Virtual tour cameras and one shot lens technology is certainly something to steer clear of if you desire to create good looking panoramic images.
Rather, it is the result of lens, the camera and the photographer's skills.
Hands down, the only people I would honestly recommend a one shot lens and virtual tour camera system to would be the Realtors listing only vacant land because taking a one shot lens system inside of a home is a recipe for disaster.

To find the DOF for detector limited resolution, we choose the diffraction spot size created by the lens to be one pixel width in diameter, and the geometric blur due to defocus also to be one pixel width in diameter.
For example, with the lens operating at f/22 and allowing a geometric blur of two pixel widths, the DOF is 3.2 mm, which is four times larger.
In optics, distortion is a particular lens aberration that causes objects to be imaged farther or closer to the optical axis than for a perfect image.

 Lens and Cataract Program - National Plan for Eye and Vision Research [NEI Strategic Planning]
Knowledge that the functional inactivation of genes—whose activity is mainly required during early stages of lens formation—also leads to cataract formation due to their downstream effects in structural lens fiber genes such as crystallins has brought researchers closer to a mechanistic understanding of certain types of cataract.
Key to understanding lens function is an understanding of the controls of lens epithelial cell proliferation and differentiation into fiber cells, a process that begins during development and continues throughout life.
Identification of mutations in human lens fiber cell cytoskeletal genes, combined with information from studies on genetically engineered mice, establishes that some elements of the lens cytoskeleton are not required to achieve optical clarity but are required to maintain it.
