Scanning electron-microscopic study of lens fibers of the pig


Whole pig lenses were fixed, critical-point dried and fractured, and the internal surfaces examined with a scanning electron microscope. At various locations from the equator to the center of the lens four types of fibers can be distinguished. The superficial fibers have small interdigitations. Cortical lens fibers, which are hexagonal in shape exhibit well… (More)
