Lens sutures seen in the eye (Video)

length: 14 seconds

In this video, you can see the normal suture lines that form in the lens with normal eye development. In the front of the lens is a “Y” while in the back, the “Y” is inverted (like a mercedes sign). This is a subtle finding and easier to see in a young eye. Certain types of cataract can form in this suture plain, which gives you a hint as to what portion of embryonic development this occured.

Look closely in this movie … the finding is fleeting and hard to capture in motion.
