Which liquids are present in our eye and why?
There are two types of fluids present in the eye :
- Vitreous Humour - It is a dense jelly like fluid, slightly grey in colour, filling the part of eye between the crystalline lens and the retina. Its function is to prevent the eyeball from collapsing due to change in atmospheric pressure
- Aqueous Humour - It is a watery, saline fluid, filling the part of eye between the cornea and the crystalline lens. Its function is to prevent front part of eyeball collapsing with the change in atmospheric pressure and to keep the cornea moist.
