We present the first account (to our knowledge) of interaction between stochastic light and the crystalline human eye lens. In particular, the spectral density and the spectral degree of polarization of light focused by the crystalline lens onto the eye's back wall are examined. We find that the correlation properties of the incident light play the important role in the process of image formation by the eye and in its perception of polarization features of the incoming radiation.
