The anterior ciliary arteries are derived from the muscular branches of the Ophthalmic Artery.

They run to the front of the eyeball in company with the extraocular muscles, form a vascular zone beneath the conjunctiva, and then pierce the sclera a short distance from the cornea and end in the circulus arteriosus major.

These arteries supply the conjunctiva & sclera.
