1. The stiffness of the eye and the extraocular muscles of the conscious rabbit was measured and compared with similar measurements made on human subjects. 2. The extraocular muscles of the rabbit developed less than 0.5 g at optimal isometric length when the contralateral eye was in "primary position". Deviations of the eye of the rabbit from primary position were accomplished by an increase in force of the agonist muscle with only a nominal decrease in force in the antagonist. 3.
