Puncta

Small openings at the medial edge of each upper and lower eyelid along the lid margin where tears from the ocular surface drain into. The tears then drain from the puncta into the nasolacrimal duct. Puncta can be stenotic or obstructed due to inflammation or other processes, and may require treatment for patency. When blocked, irritation and tearing occurs.
