In brief: Aqueous humor

This is a clear fluid, derived from blood serum, which contains some nutrients, oxygen and which bathes and provides for the health of the interior components of the front of the eye.
It also maintains the normal pressure so that proper focusing is possible. It is produced continuously and an equal amount drains continuously.

In brief: Aqueous humor

The anterior chamber fluid, or aqueous humor, is produced by the ciliary processes behind the iris and is very similar to fluid in the kidney tubules and extra-cellular spaces, except for a very high concentration of Ascorbic Acid for buffering.
