Human anatomy, including structure and development and practical considerations . omthe fasciie coxerinj;^ the inferior and internal recti and the inferior ()bli(|ue, is attachedto the lower and median orl)ital wall. These fascial extensicjns, i)assin^ as they dofrom the tendons of the eye-muscles to the orbital wall, restrain excessive muscularaction and hence the name, c/iec^ //Q-amen/s, has been applied, especially to thoselimiting the action of the internal and external recti. The processes also materiallyassist in maintaining the position of the eyeball within the orbit. This function isparticularly exercised by the robust fascial expansion which stretches across the orbitbelow the eyeball and as the stispcnsory ligament of Lockwood seres to support thebulbus oculi. The orbital fat is prevented from projecting forward beyond a certain limit and, therefore, from encroaching unduly upon the eyelid, ^y a sheet of fibrous tissue, the Yc, . 1199.
