The cornea is: the anterior (front) portion of the eye. It is composed of five layers (a sixth layer has recently been discovered). It is optically clear, rigid and allows light to be refracted into the eye. The lens is inside the eye behind the iris and is optically clear. When young, the lens can change shape through the interaction of the ciliary body, helping to focus the light to the retina. ...Read more

Do all myopics have standard measurement of thinner retina with each degree of higher myopia? Couldn't it be due to defects in anterior layers of eye?
Different issue: Myopes have a combination of greater length of the eye from front to back and a lense that is higher power. All retinas except some pathologic retinas are the same thickness. A myopic eye focuses the light inside the eye in front of the retina as the focusing is too strong. A myopic corrective lens disperses the waves moving the focus backwards onto the retina. ...Read more
