Drainage of Intraocular Fluids

  • Anders Bill


The fluids that will be considered in this communication are the tissue fluids of the uvea and the retina and the vitreous and aqueous humors. Retinal tissue fluid and the vitreous and aqueous humor are very special fluids located outside barriers with a low permeability to most solutes. In the choroid and the ciliary processes on the other hand the capillaries have a high permeability to all low molecular weight substances (Törnquist, Alm and Bill,1979). As a consequence the tissue fluids in these regions are practically at equilibrium with the plasma with regard to most low molecular weight solutes and contain considerable quantities of plasma proteins (Bill, 1968a, b).
