The ciliary body is a circular structure that is an extension of the iris, the colored part of the eye. The ciliary body produces the fluid in the eye called aqueous humor. It also contains the ciliary muscle, which changes the shape of the lens when your eyes focus on a near object.

In bright light, the circular muscles contract whilst the radial muscles relax.
This causes the pupil to constrict and less light enters the eye. In dim conditions the opposite occurs. The circular muscles relax and the radial muscles contract, causing the pupil to dilate and allowing more light to pass into the eye.

Under bright light, the circular muscles contract.
Do you find any articles related to how contracting circular muscles affects the production and outflow of Aqueous humor?
               
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks, to everyone very much for any suggestions (^v^)

On the other words, wouldcontracting circular muscles effect ciliary muscle under bright light? so ciliary body produces more fluid in the eye as a result.

Ciliary muscle changes the shape of the lens when your eyes focus on a near object.

During focusing on a near object, Ciliary muscles is contract or relax,
How does the status of Ciliary muscles affects on the production and outflow of Aqueous humor?

Are they related? I don't think the opening and closing of the iris by these muscles is related to aqueous humor production.

Bright light causes the iris to close. In bright light, the circular muscles contract whilst the radial muscles relax. This causes the pupil to constrict and less light enters the eye.
