In brief: Ciliary body
The aqueous functions as the clear "blood" of the front of the eye.
It is produced in a ring gland behind the outer edge of the iris called the ciliary body. The fluid bathes the eye interior and supplies oxygen and nutrients to the lens and the inside of the cornea, carrying away waste products and carbon dioxide. Dysfunction of the drains can lead to glaucoma.
