Several enzymatic and nonenzymatic reactions play important roles in the physiologic neutralization of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in the anterior segment of the eye. The nonenzymatic reactions are particularly important in the aqueous humor, where enzymes are normally absent and high levels of ascorbate are present. One of ascorbate's presumed functions is to protect the lens and retina from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. It also appears to act as an antioxidant for the removal of… CONTINUE READING
