Zonules

« Back to Glossary Index

Zonules, also known as zonular fibers or suspensory ligaments, are delicate, transparent fibers that help to suspend and position the lens within the eye. They are crucial for maintaining the shape and function of the lens, allowing it to focus light onto the retina for clear vision.

Zonules

These zonules are composed of specialized proteins and are attached to the ciliary body, a ring-shaped structure behind the eye’s iris. The ciliary body produces aqueous humor, which nourishes the lens and helps maintain intraocular pressure.
