Aqueous humor dynamics

Aqueous humor dynamics

The dynamics of aqueous humor explained in a flow chart as:

Pars plicata

Posterior chamber



Trabecular meshwork

Schlemm’s canal

Episcleral vein

The circuit involves:

Ciliary body →Posterior chamber →Through Pupil →Anterior chamber →Trabecular meshwork →Schlemm’s canal →Episcleral veins

  1. Angle closure glaucoma → Angle blocked

  2. Open angle glaucoma → Trabecular meshwork (most common) * or Schlemm’s canal blocked
