Abstract

The contents of the human orbit develop from all embryonic germinal layers to form diverse and specialized interconnected structures, whose unified function is that of providing sight. A thorough knowledge of these structures and their inter-relationships is imperative for the head and neck surgeon. This article will discuss the structures contained within the orbit from a surgical perspective in the hope of expanding the head and neck surgeon's knowledge and comfort when treatment indication necessitates entry into this space.
