This medical illustration features a detailed look a the drainage apparatus of the eye. The lacrimal canaliculi, lacrimal sac and nasolacrimal ducts are shown beneath the skin. The canaliculi drains the tears from the eye's surface. The liquid then accumulates within the lacrimal sac and then eventually drains into the nasal passage via the nasolacrimal duct.
