Ciliary Body


Ciliary Body is the circumferential tissue inside the eye. It is composed of the ciliary muscle and ciliary processes. The ciliary epithelium, double layer, coats the ciliary body situated in the horizontal section in triangular shape. The epithelium produces the aqueous humor. The inner layer is transparent. It covers the vitreous body, continuing from the neural tissue of the retina. The outer layer is highly pigmented. It is continuous with the retinal pigment epithelium, and constitutes the cells of the dilator muscle. The inner layer is unpigmented until it reaches the iris, where it takes on pigmentation.The ciliary body has 3 functions- accommodation, aqueous humor production, and the production and maintenance of the lens zonules. It also anchors the lens in place
