Intraocular Dynamics of the Aphakic Eye
In the normal, human eye the vitreous is a gel-like structure which consists of a liquid filled connective tissue. Although the water content of the vitreous is as high as 99% the intravitreal fluid, i.e. the vitreous humour, experience much more resistance to flow than it would in a free body of water (1). However, when the lens is removed from the eye as in a cataract extraction the gel structure of the vitreous is often destroyed and the vitreous humour is free to flow in the vitreal cavity.
