Lacrimal Punctum, Ectopic

Subjective: Positioning of a lacrimal punctum other than at the medial margins of the eyelid


The openings of the tear ducts are normally located at the medial margin of each eyelid. The opening on the lower eyelid border is more visible than the opening on the upper eyelid border. Ectopic positions can include the upper eyelid, nasal bridge, or inferior to medial aspect of the lower lid.
