Eye Muscles (ExtraOcular Muscles)
The extraocular muscles are located within the orbit, but are extrinsic and separate from the eyeball itself. They act to control the movements of the eyeball and the superior eyelid.
There are seven extraocular muscles – the levator palpebrae superioris, superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, lateral rectus, inferior oblique and superior oblique. Functionally, they can be divided into two groups:
Responsible for eye movement: Recti and oblique muscles. Responsible for superior eyelid movement: Levator palpebrae superioris.
