Aqueous humor is a transparent watery fluid that fills the front section of the eye between the lens and the cornea. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and shape of the eye by contributing to the intraocular pressure, lubricating the surfaces of the cornea and lens, removing waste products from the eye as well as providing essential nutrients such as oxygen and glucose. Central BioHub offers a curated collection of aqueous humor samples isolated from patients suffering from disease such as glaucoma or cataract.

About Human Aqueous Humor

Aqueous humor is continuously produced in the ciliary body, a structure in the eye that includes the ciliary muscle that controls the shape of the lens and the ciliary epithelium where the fluid is produced. From there, it flows through the pupil into the space between the cornea and the iris called the anterior chamber. From there, it drains out of the eye through a grid of drainage channels before it eventually enters the bloodstream. 
Aqueous humor provides essential nutrients, such as oxygen and glucose to the avascular cornea (which lacks blood vessels) and to the lens of the eye.
It also contributes to maintain the intraocular pressure (IOP) inside the eye. Sufficient IOP is essential to keep the shape of the eye intact and support its normal functioning. Hence, changes in the IOP can lead to eye diseases such as glaucoma.
Aqueous humor also plays an important role in lubricating the surfaces of the cornea and the lens. Due to this process, the friction that occurs when the eyelids blink and the eye moves, is reduced.
Finally, aqueous humor helps in the removal of waste products from the eye such as metabolic waste and cellular debris.
Imbalances in the production or drainage of aqueous humor can lead to eye conditions such as glaucoma, which is characterized by an increase in intraocular pressure which could damage the optic nerve and ultimately result in a loss of vision. Therefore, proper regulation of aqueous humor is crucial for maintaining good eye health and vision.

Aqueous humor nourishes the avascular cornea and lens, maintains intraocular pressure, lubricates the eye, and helps to remove waste products. Central BioHub offers Aqueous humor samples for research to better understand the underlying mechanisms and unveil potential drug targets for conditions like glaucoma that are related to an imbalance of aqueous humor.
Aqueous humor is produced by the ciliary body and flows into the anterior chamber of the eye. From there, the fluid exits the eye through a network of drainage channels before ultimately entering the bloodstream.
Imbalances in the aqueous humor production or malfunctions in the process of drainage can lead primarily to increased intraocular pressure (IOP), which is a risk factor for glaucoma and similar conditions. High IOP levels can also damage the optic nerve which can potentially cause vision loss if patients do not seek medical treatment.
Yes, certain eye diseases and conditions can alter the composition of the aqueous humor. Inflammation or infection of the eye can change the composition of the fluid and potentially result in vision problems and discomfort. Central BioHub is proud to offer Aqueous humor from patients for research since the quality of aqueous humor is important for diagnosing and managing eye-related conditions.
