Nasolacrimal duct: The groove for nasolacrimal duct is located medially near the orbital margin. It is a membranous passage of 18 mm length. It begins at the lower end of the lacrimal sac, runs downwards, backwards and laterally, and opens into the inferior meatus of the nose. A fold of mucous membrane called the valve of Hasner forms an imperfect valve at the lower end of the duct.
