Intraocular fluid

The intraocular fluid is a clear fluid filling the space of the chambers of the anterior segment of the eye, it is drained into blood vessels in the sclera and provides nutrition for the lens and the cornea. It is hypertonic with high concentrations of ascorbic acid. In cases of eye inflammation, the physiological composition of the intraocular fluid gets disrupted (there is also a disruption of production and outflow).
