The cranial nerve V, the trigeminal opthalmic nerve is one of the divisions of the cranial nerve. It is one of three such branches of the trigeminal nerve. This ophthalmic division consists of the uppermost set of trigeminal nerve fibers, which bring impulses to the brain from the surface of the eye, the tear gland, and the skin of the scalp, forehead, and upper eyelid.
