Description: 

Light focused by excised lens of a Pacific reef squid. The parallel beams of laser light coming from right to left enter the clear lens and are precisely focused beyond the lens. The point of intersection of the beams corresponds precisely with the distance from the back of the lens to the surface of the retina in an intact eye.
