The rate of aqueous humor formation sequentially across the pigmented (PE) and nonpigmented (NPE) ciliary epithelial cell layers may not be uniform over the epithelial surface. Because of the tissue's small size and complex geometry, this possibility cannot be readily tested by conventional techniques. Rabbit iris-ciliary bodies were divided, incubated, quick-frozen, cryosectioned, and freeze-dried for electron probe X-ray microanalysis of the elemental contents of the PE and NPE cells. We… CONTINUE READING
