Consultant ophthalmologist Dr Mukesh Joshi, of Nairobi's Laser Eye Centre, explains that there is a fluid in the front part of the eye known as the aqueous humor
The scientists examined miRNA in the aqueous humor
that nourishes the front of the eye in a dozen patients with the common, primary open angle glaucoma, another dozen with the rare and even more difficult-to-treat exfoliation glaucoma, and compared the miRNA profile of each to that of 11 people with healthy eyes of a similar age.

The aqueous humor
is a clear watery fluid, filling the anterior chamber (0.
Inadequate aqueous humor
drainage increases the intraocular pressure (IOP) and may lead to glaucoma.
3) Patients who develop ocular ischemia may exhibit an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP) due to neovascularization; however, aqueous humor
production decreases in some patients due to ciliary body ischemia, resulting in no IOP increase.
Viable Zaire Ebola virus (EBOV) was detected from the aqueous humor
9 weeks after the clearance of viremia (9).
Pseudoexfoliation material accumulates into canals providing drainage of aqueous humor
fluid and results in raised intraocular pressure and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEG).
The most widely prescribed glaucoma drugs include the prostaglandin analogs (PGAs) that lower IOP by increasing the aqueous drainage through the unconventional uveoscleral outflow pathway, whereas the non-PGA drug classes such as the beta blockers, alpha agonists, and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, lower IOP by decreasing the production of aqueous humor
Latanoprostene bunod is believed to lower IOP by increasing outflow of aqueous humor
through both the trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral routes.
Section 2, the bulk of the book, describes 19 clinical procedures in four categories: trabecular outflow procedures, uveoscleral outflow procedures, aqueous humor
reduction procedures, and transconjunctival filtration procedures.
