  1. crystalline humournoun

    The lens of the eye.

Samuel Johnson's Dictionary

  1. Crystalline Humournoun

    The second humour of the eye, that lies immediately next to the aqueous behind the uvea, opposite to the papilla, nearer to the forepart than the backpart of the globe. It is the least of the humours, but much more solid than any of them. Its figure, which is convex on both sides, resembles two unequal segments of spheres, of which the most convex is on its backside, which makes a small cavity in the glassy humour in which it lies. It is covered with a fine coat, called aranea.

    The parts of the eye are made convex, and especially the crystalline humour, which is of a lenticular figure, convex on both sides. John Ray, on the Creation.
