EYE QUIZ: “B” IS THE CILIARY BODY / MUSCLE

The CILIARY MUSCLE is a muscle in the CILIARY BODY, an area of the eye which helps people focus. With the assistance of the ciliary muscle, the lens of the eye can be flattened or rounded to allow people to focus on distant and near objects. This muscle is also responsible for controlling part of the drainage system of the eye to maintain the proper fluid pressure in the eye. Damage to this muscle can lead to vision problems.
