see blood-aqueous barrier.
aqueous flare
turbidity of the aqueous humor caused by increased protein levels and cells.
aqueous humor
the fluid produced by the ciliary process in the eye and occupying the anterior and posterior chambers. It provides nourishment for the lens and cornea and maintains the ocular pressure, and hence the optical integrity of the eyeball. Disturbance of its drainage through the corneoiridial angle can induce glaucoma and other disorders.
aqueous misdirection
aqueous paracentesis
plasmoid aqueous
aqueous humor with a protein concentration approaching that of plasma; seen in inflammation or other disruption of the blood-aqueous barrier.
