The sclera of the eye is covered by fascia (Tenon's capsule) up to the corneal limbus. The capsule extends onto and encloses the rectus muscles. The lacrimal gland occupies the upper outer quadrant of the orbit, and is partially divided by a fascial septum extending from the levator palpebrae superioris (not shown).

The orbit contains fat between and around the eye and adnexa. The conjunctiva attaches at the corneal limbus, covers the anterior third of the globe, and reflects onto the under surface of the eyelids at the superior and inferior fornices.
