But if I incised the cornea, the animals manifested intense pain, when the aqueous humor escaped and the iris prolapsed.
What is the use of the aqueous humor and the vitreous humor?
The aqueous humor will escape, and a large bunch of fungus will start up in the place of the ulcer occupied.
These media are the cornea, the aqueous humor, and the vitreous humor.
In the healthy eye the aqueous humor, lens, and vitreous humor are clear, and do not in any way obstruct the passage of the light.
The quantity of flocculent deposit in the chamber of the aqueous humor is also in direct ratio to the inflammation of the iris.
Its posterior surface forms the anterior boundary of the chamber in which the aqueous humor is contained.
The aqueous humor becomes slightly turbid in acute attacks, coagulating more readily than the normal.
The two chambers are lined by a thin layer, the secreting membrane of the aqueous humor.
The iris is a kind of curtain, covering the aqueous humor—aqueous is from the Latin aqua, water.
aqueous humor n.
The clear, watery fluid circulating in the chamber of the eye between the cornea and the lens.
