1902 Excerpt: ... a species of incomplete orbital diaphragm, which
is sometimes termed the septum orbitale. The Meibomian
Follicles.--The Meibomian follicles, or the tarsal glands, are
embedded in the tarsus. They form a series of parallel glands,
placed on the deep surface of each tarsus, at right angles to its
free or palpebral border. They number about thirty in the upper
eyelid, and about twenty in the lower. The ducts of the Meibomian
follicles open in a line along the free margin of each eyelid
immediately behind the eyelashes. The Conjunctiva.--The deep
surface of each eyelid is lined by conjunctiva. Above, or below
each eyelid respectively, the palpebral conjunctiva becomes
continuous with the ocular conjunctiva, the line of reflection
between the two being termed the fornix conjunctivce. The Internal
Tarsal Ligament.--The internal tarsal ligament is a small fibrous
band situated at the inner side of the orbit. It serves to fix the
two tarsal plates internally, and also gives origin to the
orbicularis palpebrarum muscle. Internally, the internal tarsal
ligament is attached to the nasal process of the superior maxilla
just in front of the lachrymal groove. It passes outwards
immediately in front of the lachrymal sac. Externally, it divides
into two parts, which are attached to the inner borders of the
superior and inferior tarsi respectively. The External Tarsal
Ligament.--The external tarsal ligament is an unimportant band
which connects the two tarsi to the malar bone. The Lachrymal
Apparatus.--This is best described with the orbit. (See page 174.)
