Last Updated: Jun 22, 2015

The lacrimal nerve is one of the divisions of the trigeminal nerve (V). It is part of the ophthalmic division, which consists of sensory fibers that bring impulses to the brain from the surface of the eye, the tear gland (the lacrimal branch), and the skin on the front scalp, forehead, and upper eyelid.
