The stereotypic structure and location of the orbital connective tissues have long been recognized. The notion that these tissues might control extraocular muscle (EOM) paths was proposed in the late 19th century, when Sappey applied the French term “poulie” to their function of bowing EOM paths. The concept was promptly forgotten, displaced by the idea that EOM actions were completely determined by the geometry of their origins and insertions. In the 1970s, the pioneering biomedical engineer… CONTINUE READING
