Oblique Muscles Inactive: No Accommodation 41
Fig. 14. Demonstration Upon the Eye of a Carp That the Superior Oblique Muscle Is Essential to Accommodation.
No. 1.-The superior oblique is lifted from the eyeball by two sutures, and the retinoscope shows no error of refraction. No. 2. -Electrical stimulation produces accommodation, as determined by the retinoscope. No. 3.-The muscle has been cut. Stimula tion of the eyeball with electricity fails to produce accommoda tion. No. 4.-The divided muscle has been reunited by tying the sutures. Accommodation follows electrical stimulation as before.
