Levator palpebrae superioris muscle (levator muscle)

An important muscle in the upper eyelid that serves to elevate and retract the upper eyelid. It is a skeletal muscle. It attaches onto the superior tarsal plate and the skin through its distal tendon-like sheath, the levator aponeurosis. Altogether, the levator palpebrae superioris and the levator aponeurois are referred to as the levator complex.
