I am not completely sure where there are cartilage in the eye. I think the developing vitreous body (very light coloured) does not have cartilage. You can assume the eye is during the weeks 11-13 of the embryo.

Where can you see cartilage in the developing eye in the embryo? My assistant says that it can be used an orientation point to define the rest of the eye.
