What is aqueous humour?

Answer: 

The aqueous humour is a clear, watery fluid that fills your eye's anterior chamber.

It carries nutrients for the lens and for part of the cornea, and contributes to the maintenance of the intraocular pressure.

It leaves the eye through a drain or meshwork created by other cells where the iris meets the cornea.
