The corner of a human eye. Macroscopic footage showing the inner corner (medial canthus) of a healthy human eye. Part of the green iris can be seen surrounding the pupil (black). The pinkish triangle of tissue at the corner is called the lacrimal caruncle. It contains sweat and oil glands called sudoriferous and sebaceous glands, and fatty tissue. The lower eyelid is pulled downwards to reveal the lower lacrimal punctum, an opening leading to the tear duct which drains tears from the eye into the nasal cavity.
