    Anterior epithelium
  16. What receptor cells are found on the dilator muscle?
    A1 - sympathetic
  17. What causes the iris color?
    Due to the amount of pigmentation of melanocytes in the anterior border layer of the iris

    Frontal eye fields
  22. What part of the ciliary body creates zonular fibers?
    Pars plana
  23. How does the parasympathetic system work on the ciliary muscle?
    Stimulates contraction which causes accomodation
  24. How does the sympathetic system work on the ciliary muscle?
    Inhibitory to contraction
  25. What reeptors are located on the ciliary muscle?
    • A2 - constriction - reduces aqueous production
