Abstract

IN a previous communication1, I reported that sodium enters the aqueous humor predominantly by secretion. This implies either : (i) that practically no ultra-filtration at all takes place from the vessels of the iris and ciliary body; or (ii) that the amount of sodium entering the aqueous by secretion greatly exceeds the amount entering by ultra-filtration, even if ultra-filtration still supplies a considerable part of the fluid volume of the aqueous.
