Summary Information: Ciliary Body

Ciliary Body: The ciliary body is a specialized structure of the eye. The ciliary body is a muscle located around the lens of the eye and is connected to it by the suspensory ligaments. It changes the shape of the lens as needed to focus light reflected from objects at different distances from the eye. Light flows through the cornea and the pupil onto the lens before it is projected onto the retina.

Conditions that can afflict the ciliary body include ciliary body melanoma and trauma.
