Our eyes are vital organs of sight that enable us to perform numerous tasks which we often take for granted. For instance, certain muscles in our eyes, take for example, like the superior oblique muscle, helps us to perform downward eye movements. This assists us in performing daily activities such as driving, walking and tying our shoe strings. Without the use of these eye muscles we could not perform these activities. Another eye muscle that belongs to the same group of eye muscles called the extra-ocular muscles is called the ciliary muscles.

The Ciliary muscle is an important part of the eye due to the fact that without the use of this muscle we would lose our ability to focus on near and distant objects clearly. This is due to the fact that this particular eye muscle is responsible for controlling the focusing mechanism of the visual system. This part of the eye plays an integral role in helping us to adjust our focus so that the eye lens can change its shape to bring near and distant objects into clear focus through a process called accommodation. This process is defined as the activities of the eye muscles in terms of the vital role that they play in adjusting the shape of the eye and the eye lens so that our eyes can bring near and distant objects into clear focus.

Without these muscles the shape of the eye lens would actually become abnormal leading to vision conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Without these eye muscles also many various daily activities that we often take for granted such as reading, watching television, writing and driving would actually be impossible tasks to perform.

This is due to the fact that these essential parts of the eye are needed when we engage in close up activities such as using computers and digital devices etc. When we are engaging in these close up activities these eye muscles contract and adjust the focus of the eye lens. This is done so that the lens becomes round in shape thereby enabling us to see nearby objects clearly.

The Ciliary eye muscles are part of an essential group of eye muscles in the visual system called the extra-ocular muscles. One example of one of these muscles is called the ciliary muscles. These muscles are vital due to the fact that they play an important role in enabling us to focus on near and distant objects clearly. Without these muscles our vision would become very unclear and blurry as these muscles are responsible for strengthening the focusing ability of the eyes. These are just some of the fascinating functions associated with eye anatomy. There is an application here with the pursuit of an eye exercise program. This is due to the fact that the regular practice of eye exercise techniques can improve the focusing power of the eyes, thereby improving the function of these muscles for better vision without glasses.
