The ciliary body is attached to the ocular wall at the scleral spur. This band of attachment forms a barrier between the anterior chamber and the sclerochoroidal interspace, and any changes in that barrier will affect the intraocular pressure. Operations on the ciliary body consist either in separating the ciliary body from its attachment (cyclodialysis) or reattaching the ciliary body to the scleral spur (cyclopexy).
