Definition of extraocular muscle in English:
Each of six small voluntary muscles controlling movement of the eyeball within the socket.
- Other symptoms include photophobia, pain with extraocular muscle movement, excessive tearing, blepharospasm, foreign body sensation, gritty feeling, blurred vision, and headache.
- It may be absent on one side, in which case the extraocular muscle usually innervated by the abducens (the lateral rectus) is supplied by the oculomotor nerve.
- But this isn't a simple diabetic extraocular muscle palsy.
