ANATOMY AND FUNCTIONS OF THE EYE

 

  • Two bony sockets referred to as the orbits of the skull are where the eyeballs are located.
  • The eyeballs themselves are protected by being embedded in orbital fat.
  • The tenons capsule is a membrane that envelop the eyeballs which keeps it separate from the orbital fat which then allow them to move freely.
  • 4 rectus, and 2 oblique muscles allow the eyeballs to move in different directions.
