The four rectus muscles move the eyes up, down, to the right, and to the left, and the two oblique muscles have more complex actions, helping the eyes to look down and in (towards the tip of the nose) or up and in (towards the bridge of the nose). There a plethora of causes which disturbs this minute balance and this study intends to throw some light on this topic.
