The aqueous humor (AH) provides oxygen and nutrients for the avascular ocular tissue specifically, the cornea and lens. AH is secreted by the ciliary body into the posterior chamber, passes through pupil, and drains into the anterior chamber (Fig. 1a). Resistance to the aqueous outflow generates the intraocular pressure (IOP), which is 15–20 mmHg in the normal eyes.
