The fascia bulbi (also known as the capsule of Tenon and the bulbar sheath) is a thin membrane which envelops the eyeball from the optic nerve to the limbus, separating it from the orbital fat and forming a socket in which it moves.wikipedia

In front it adheres to the conjunctiva, and both structures are attached to the ciliary region of the eyeball.

Periscleral lymph space

periscleral space
Its inner surface is smooth, and is separated from the outer surface of the sclera by the periscleral lymph space.
The periscleral lymph space or episcleral space of the eye is the space between the outer surface of the sclera and the inner surface of the capsule of Ténon.

Jacques-René Tenon

TenonJacques Tenon
The structure was named after Jacques-René Tenon (1724–1816), a French surgeon and pathologist.
Today, the Hôpital Tenon in Paris is named after him, as is the capsule of Tenon, a membrane that envelops the posterior five-sixths of the eyeball.

Extraocular muscles

extraocular muscleeye muscleseye muscle
The disease is also known as orbital inflammatory pseudotumor, and sometimes may only affect the lacrimal gland or the extraocular muscles.
The extraocular muscles develop along with Tenon's capsule (part of the ligaments) and the fatty tissue of the eye socket (orbit).

Charles Barrett Lockwood

Charles Barrett Lockwood described a thickening of the lower part of the fascia bulbi, which he named the 'suspensory ligament of the eye'.
This structure is the thickened area of contact between Tenon's capsule and the sheaths of the inferior rectus and inferior oblique muscles.

It can be considered a part of the bulbar sheath.
