Labelled Diagram of the Eye

There is a ciliary ring located in each eye in the *human body.
It is one of the three zones of the ciliary body (which connects the choroid with the iris).

The ciliary ring is also know as the orbiculus ciliaris, another descriptive term often used in older textbooks and medical papers.

The ciliary ring or 'orbiculus ciliaris' is an area approx. 4 mm wide in which the ciliary body is connected to the anterior (front) part of the choroid. It is primarily a connecting component and as such does not have as active a role as the ciliary muscle, for example.
