Summary

The flowering speed in the aqueous humor of the eye of man and rabbit is the same (Kinsey, Grant, andCogan). The exchange of half of the aqueous humor in an anæsthetized eye takes place in approximately 2·7 minutes. Under normal conditions, resistance changes in the capillary system may widely influence the water-exchange rate. The exchange between lens and vitreous humor is very small and depends upon the condition of the protein structure.
