Muscles and Eye Movements

Muscles and Eye Movements are controlled by muscles innervated by cranial nerves III, IV and VI. The muscles of the eye are designed to stabilize and move the eyes. All eye muscles have a resting muscle tone that is designed to stabilize eye position. 
The primary muscle that moves an eye in a given direction is known as the “agonist.”  A muscle in the same eye that moves the eye in the same direction as the agonist is known as a “synergist,” while the muscle in the same eye that moves the eye in the opposite direction of the agonist is the “antagonist.”
