Left Nasolacrimal Ducts
This exhibit depicts the anatomy of the nasolacrimal ducts. Tears are secreted by the lacrimal gland at the superolateral aspect of the eye. They then flow over the eye in an inferomedial direction, emptying into the lacrimal canaliculi at the medial canthus. The lacrimal canaliculi then connect to the nasolacrimal duct, which travels through the skull and drains into the nasal cavity.
