• We describe a technique and apparatus for observing and photographing the crystalline lens in vivo and in the enucleated eye. Magnifications of ×25 to ×100 are easily obtainable on the film plane. The method is suitable for diagnostic observation and clinical research on cataract formation and prevention in humans, as well as for animal experimentation studies.
