Müller's, Rouget's

Description

The circular fibers (Müller's muscle, Rouget's muscle) are internal to the meridional ones, and in a meridional section appear as a triangular zone behind the filtration angle and close to the circumference of the iris. They are well-developed in hypermetropic, but are rudimentary or absent in myopic eyes.
