Ophthalmic Artery

The ophthalmic artery gives off many branches, which supply the orbit, meninges, face, and upper nose. It is the first branch of the internal carotid artery.

Branches of the ophthalmic artery include:

The first branch of the ophthalmic artery is the central retinal artery that runs in the dura mater of the optic nerve. It then moves further and supplies the inner layers of the retina.

The lacrimal artery is the second and largest branch of the ophthalmic artery. It enters the orbit and passes along the superior edge of the lateral rectus muscle. It supplies the eyelids, lacrimal gland, and conjunctiva.

The ophthalmic artery gives off several posterior ciliary arteries that pass through the sclera and supply the posterior uveal tract. It also gives off the inferior and superior muscular vessels that supply the extraocular muscles.

The other branches of the ophthalmic artery include the ethmoid arteries, medial palpebral vessels, and terminal branches.
