Lacrimal Ducts

We just learned about the Lacrimal Punctum.

Another part of the eye is the Lacrimal Ducts, also called the lacrimal canals or lacrimal canaliculi.

When the water in your eyes from tears goes into the lacrimal punctum hole in your eyelid, it goes into the lacrimal ducts.
These are like little tubes that bring the water away from your eyeball.

(from: wikipedia - lacrimal canaliculi)
