Aqueous Humor Flow Rate
According to CB Toris and CB Camras, September 2007, measuring the outflow of aqueous humor has helped elucidate the pathophysiology of glaucoma and the mechanism of action (MoA) of IOP-lowering treatments. However, difficulties are inherent in each method of measurement, and these issues need to be considered when assessing flow rate. Both authors best describe the situation below.
