Lacrimal Bone

A lacrimal bone is a thin, scale like structure located in the middle wall of each eye socket between the ethmoid bone and the maxilla. A groove in the front leads from the orbit to the nasal cavity and provides a pathway for a tube that carries tears from the eye to the nasal cavity.
