In this manner, what does it mean to abduct the eye?
Strabismus is a position of the eyes where they are not directed at the same target (in some parts of the country this is termed a "squint"). Abduction is bringing the pupil away from the nose. Adduction is bringing the pupil toward the nose. Elevation is moving the pupil above the horizon.
Similarly, what are the different actions of the eye? Movements
|Inferior rectus||Oculomotor nerve (inferior branch)||Depression|
|Superior oblique||Trochlear nerve||Incyclotorsion|
|Inferior oblique||Oculomotor nerve (inferior branch)||Excyclotorsion|
|Levator palpebrae superioris||Oculomotor nerve||Elevation/retraction of the upper eyelid|
In respect to this, what is Intorsion of the eye?
Eye Movements. Elevation and depression of the eye are termed sursumduction (supraduction) and deorsumduction (infraduction), respectively. Incycloduction (intorsion) is nasal rotation of the vertical meridian; excycloduction (extorsion) is temporal rotation of the vertical meridian. (See the image below.)
What is the secondary position of the eye?
Secondary positions are up, down, right, and left gaze. These are achieved by pure rotations about the horizontal (x) or vertical (z) axes. Tertiary positions are oblique positions: up and right, up and left, down and right, and down and left [ 4 ].
