Core Tip Many of the central components of renin-angiotensin system (RAS) have been identified in different structures of the human eye. Recent findings suggest that local RAS accounts for long term changes in ocular tissue level. Antihypertensive drugs which inhibit RAS (Angiotensin converting enzyme or AT-receptor blockade) reduce intraocular pressure suggesting their possibility as anti-glaucomatous drugs in the future. Here we describe the local intraocular RAS especially in the anterior part of eye.
