  7. In geometry, a lens is a shape comprising two circular arcs, joined at their endpoints. If the arcs have equal radii, it is called a symmetric lens. The corresponding shape is the lune. The Vesica piscis is one form of a symmetrical lens; the term is also used for lenses generally.
  8. A lens is an optical device with perfect or approximate axial symmetry which transmits and refracts light, converging or diverging the beam. A simple lens consists of a single optical element. ...

  10. A camera lens (also known as photographic lens, objective lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically ...

  15. (Lenses) Most DSLRs have interchangeable lenses – you can take the lens of the front of the camera, and put on a different lens. Lenses are typically either primes (fixed focal lengths) or zooms (variable focal length), and go from extreme wide angles to extreme telephotos.

  23. A circular and transparent glass or plastic piece that has the function of collecting light and focusing it on the sensor to capture the image.
  24. Natural lens of eye; transparent intraocular tissue that helps bring rays of light to focus on the retina.
  25. A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually Spherical), that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays of an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
