Aqueous, Iris—Ciliary Body, and Trabeculum

  • Elaine R. Berman

Abstract

The chemical components of aqueous humor derive from many sources, the principal ones being plasma (by passive diffusion) and the ciliary epithelium (mainly by active secretion) (Cole, 1984). Specific substances also enter the aqueous humor by diffusion (or secretion) from surrounding tissues: corneal endothelium, lens, and vitreous. These tissues also utilize many nutrients present in the aqueous; e.g., the principal source of glucose for the cornea and lens is the aqueous humor.
