Discovery could shed light on glaucoma:

A recently discovered layer in the human cornea has been found to make a significant contribution to the tissue that controls the flow of the fluid in the eye.

Research conducted by the University of Nottingham and published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology showed that ‘Dua’s Layer’ named after Professor Harminder Dua who discovered it, plays a pivotal role in the structure of the Trabecular meshwork (TM). It is hoped that the findings could lead to a new understanding of glaucoma, since one of the primary causes of the condition is poor drainage through the TM.
