See optic nerve head leaving lamina cribosa, note ciliary body that suspends lens across the center of eye and regulates its shape. Cliliary muscles contract which relaxes the tension on the zonules and allows the lens to round up for near vision. Natural state at rest is lens being flat and accommodated for distance.
