Lacrimal Punctum

We just learned about the Lacrimal Gland.

Another part of the eye is the Lacrimal Punctum.

When tears come out of the lacrimal gland, they help keep the eye nice and wet.
If the tears do not run down your face, they will actually drain out through a hole in your lower eyelid called the lacrimal punctum.

(from: wikipedia - lacrimal punctum)
