of or relating to or constituting the vitreous humor of the eye; "the vitreous chamber"
glassy: (of ceramics) having the surface made shiny and nonporous by fusing a vitreous solution to it; "glazed pottery"; "glassy porcelain"; "hard vitreous china used for plumbing fixtures"
Resembling glass, as in transparency, brittleness, hardness, glossiness, etc.
Transparent, colorless, gelatinous mass; fills rear two-thirds of the interior of the eyeball, between the lens and the retina.
0.5 percent to 3 percent water absorption.
Pertaining to a composition of materials that resemble glass.
Surface material on some plumbing fixtures derived from or consisting of glass, translucent, and low on porosity.
A hard, nonporous surface.
luster like that of the surfaces of broken glass.
A technical term referring to the luster of a gemstone. Gemstones with a vitreous or glassy luster are by far the most common in the gems world.

The gel-like fluid in the main cavity of the eye behind lens and pupil.
Vitreous refers to a glass-like luster on a stone.
In describing glazed products, a degree of impermeability in a material characterized by low water absorption. Vitreous is less than 3% absorbtion in floor and wall tile and low voltage electrical porcelain, and less than 0.3% absorption in other materials.
A clear, jelly-like liquid that fills the middle of the eye. Also called vitreous humor.
Literally, like glass, meaning the ceramic body is nonporous (won't absorb water). All fine china is vitrified because its ingredients include silica, which literally turns to glass when fired at high temperatures, giving it strength. ...
A glassy, non-porous state, much like the eyes and minds of many students at 7:10am.
A gelatinous material that fills the back chamber of the eye. It is mostly water with a protein support matrix.
Luster similar to freshly broken glass; brightly reflective.
Next in our voyage through the eye is the vitreous. This is a jelly-like substance that fills the body of the eye. It is normally clear. In early life, it is firmly attached to the retina behind it. With age, the vitreous becomes more water-like and may detach from the retina. ...
is derived from the Latin term "vitreus" meaning "glassy". It is applied to the vitreous humor of the eye. From the Latin term "vitrium" meaning "glass" comes the phrase "in-vitro" meaning in a glass receptacle. In vitro is in contrast with "in vivo" meaning in the living body.
A jelly-like, clear fluid which fills most of the eye (from the lens back). This tends to liquefy with age, and its separation from the retina can lead to retinal tears and detachment.
