STABILITY OF THE EYE-PREVENTING POSTERIOR DISPLACEMENT

STABILITY OF THE EYE-PREVENTING POSTERIOR DISPLACEMENT

The eyes always rotate about a fixed center, which is its own geometrical centre. The contracting recti do not displace the eye posteriorly due to:
1. Bony attachment of the recti.
2. Presence of orbital fat.
3. The forward pull of the obliques.
