a network of fibers, located near the junction of the cornea and the sclera, responsible for the continual drainage of the aqueous humor from the eye and into the canal of Schlemm
A network of tissues in the eye that lies between the anterior chamber and the canal of Schlemm; tissue through which aqueous humor diffuses before draining out of the eye.
(truh-BEK-yu-lur): Mesh-like, spongy structure inside the eye at iris-scleral junction of anterior chamber angle. Filters aqueous fluid and controls its flow into Canal of Schlemm's, prior to its leaving the anterior chamber. Often becomes partially blocked in glaucoma.
a small sieve-like drain in the angle of the eye through which fluid must pass to return the blood stream.
trabeculae at angle of anterior chamber of eye where aqueous humour flows = valvulae of Gerlach, q.v.
The formal name of the mesh-like drainage canals surrounding the iris where aqueous humour drains from the eye.
The area inside the front part of the eye through which the aqueous fluid leaves the eye. Failure of this system leads to a rise in intra-ocular pressure, as in certain types of glaucoma.
the series of canals or tubes behind the iris that filters the aqueous humor and allows it to drain into the bloodstream.
The spongy, mesh-like tissue near the front of the eye that allows the aqueous fluid (humor) to flow to Schlemm's canal then out of the eye through ocular veins.
connective tissue between the anterior chamber of the eye and the venous sinus; aqueous humor filters through the fibers into the bloodstream

The trabecular meshwork is an area of tissue in the eye located around the base of the cornea, near the ciliary body, and is responsible for draining the aqueous humor from the eye via the anterior chamber (the chamber on the front of the eye covered by the cornea).
