Caption: Tear production. Computer artwork of the eye showing the position of the lacrimal apparatus, which are involved in tear production and drainage. The lacrimal gland (upper left) secretes the tear fluid and its excretory ducts convey the fluid to the eyes. The lacrimal ducts (lacrimal canalicul, right corner of the eye) then carry the fluid to the naso-lacrimal duct (vertical, far right), which conveys it to the nasal cavity. Tears are a salty antiseptic solution which cleans and moistens the eye, preventing infection and damage.
