  1. lacrimal duct

    The lacrimal duct, also known as the tear duct, is a small tube that extends from the inner corner of the eye, specifically from the lacrimal sac, and drains into the nasal cavity. Its primary function is to drain the tears and other fluids, produced by the lacrimal glands situated in the upper outer segment of the eye, away from the eye, keeping it moist and lubricated. This duct can sometimes get blocked, leading to a condition called dacryocystitis.
