We conducted anatomic dissections of macaque monkey orbits and made a quantitative assessment of the orbital geometry of the accessory lateral rectus muscle. Our results show that the expected effect of this muscle on rotations of the globe is to produce elevation and abduction. The abducting component could counteract nasal drifts, and thus our findings… CONTINUE READING
