The clear fluid inside the eye orbit that, under proper level and pressure, keeps the rounded shape to the cornea. This fluid is produced by the ciliary body and drains through the trabecular meshwork. If this fluid doesn't drain properly, pressure builds within the eye and presses on the optic nerve. This condition is called glaucoma.
