Rich, David L.
MetadataShow full item record
Bill (1965) and Bill and Helsing (1965) were among the first to report on the existence of a uveoscleral pathway for the d rainage of aqueous humor. Prior to their work, the conventional, or trabecular pathway, was thought to be the only method of drainage. This paper will analyze the anatomy in the order of production, movement, and drainage of the aqueous humor. Following that will be a discussion of aqueous humor physiology, including pharmacological effects of p rostaglandins. Finally, there will be an examination of measurement techniques.
