The nerve enters the central sector of the SOF, aligned with the lateral half of the common annular tendon at the orbital apex forming the anatomical origin of the rectus muscles.
The nerve enters the lateral sector of the SOF and turns medially and superiorly outside the common annular tendon so that it can innervate the SO, which is the most medial and superior of the EOMs.
It enters the SOF centrally near the inferior division of the 3rd nerve, and goes laterally through the common annular tendon to the LR muscle.
