Medical Definition of Ciliary zonule

1. A series of delicate meridional fibres arising from the inner surface of the orbiculus ciliaris that run in bundles between, and in a very thin layer over, the ciliary processes; at the inner border of the corona, the fibres diverge into two groups that are attached to the capsule on the anterior and posterior surfaces of the lens close to the equator; the spaces between these two layers of fibres are filled with aqueous humor. Synonym: zonula ciliaris, apparatus suspensorius lentis, suspensory ligament of lens, Zinn's zonule. (05 Mar 2000)
