    great health. TearTears are made
    When people think about tears they normally think of emotional tears caused by sadness, joy, stress, and extreme emotion. They contain more protein based hormones than other kinds of tears and they also help clean the body of chemical side effects of the emotions. Basal tears are tears we experience throughout everyday life. They coat the eye in order to make them moist. The last kind of tear is the irritant/reflex tears. These are formed when one experiences pain or when foreign objects need to be flushed out and they contain lots of healing properties.

    The lacrimal gland is primarily used to protect the eye by secreting tears in order to moisten and lubricate the eye. Left over tears end up emptying into small ducts in the nasal cavity. The lacrimal gland is located above the eye but beneath the narrow end of your eyebrow.
