 # The cornea is nourished by:
A. Aqueous humor
B. Lymphatic fluid
C. Lacrimal fluid
D. All of the above




The correct answer is B. Lymphatic fluid.

The cornea is more convex than the sclera, but the curvature diminishes with age. It is separated from the iris by a space called the anterior chamber of the eye. The cornea is avascular and is nourished by lymph which circulates in the numerous corneal spaces. Pain is the only sensation aroused from the cornea.
