The extraocular muscles
are the six muscles
found in the eye: the superior rectus, inferior rectus, lateral rectus, medial rectus, superior oblique, and inferior oblique. These are the muscles that move the eyes. The extraocular muscles emerge from the white of the eye, or sclera, and surround the iris at the bottom of the orbit. The innervation and activity of the extraocular muscles are intense, with few rest phases.
