Sample text

Active secretion accounts for the majority of aqueous production and involves, at least in part, activity of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase II. Ultrafiltration refers to a pressure-dependent movement along a pressure gradient. In the ciliary processes, the hydrostatic pressure difference between capillary pressure and lOP favors fluid movement into the eye, whereas the oncotic gradient between the two resists fluid movement. The relationship between secretion and ultrafiltration is not known. Diffusion is the passive movement of ions across a membrane related to charge and concentration.

Iridoglau- the ciliary body and scleral spur and arborizing over of the myofibroblasts accompanying these vessels It is important to distinguish PAS from iris processes (the uveal meshwork), open and lacy and follow the normal curve of the angle. The angle structures in the open spaces between the processes. Synechiae are more solid or sheetlike They are composed of iris stroma and obliterate the angle recess. A 43 which are are visible (Fig 3-7). 6 Goniophotos of neovascularization of the angle.
