1. Lacrimal apparatus: consists of the lacrimal gland, lacrimal canaliculi, lacrimal sac, and nasolacrimal duct, with the lysozyme being antibacterial; the lacrimal caruncle produces a whitish oily secretion. The conunctiva secretes mucus, which aids in lubricating the eyeball. Ciliary glands are modified sweat glands and lie between the eyelash hair follicles to help lubricate the eyeball. Tarsal (meibomian) glands secrete an oily substance (inflammation of this is called a sty).

Lacrimal glands liberate tears that flows onto anterior surface of the eyeball

Tears flush across the eyeball and through the lacrimal puncta, the tiny openings of the lacrimal canaliculi medially, then into the lacrimal sac, and finally into the nasolacrimal duct, which empties into the nasal cavity. The lacrimal secretion also contains lysozyme, an antibacterial enzyme.

The lacrimal puncta/canaliculi/sac & hasolacrimal duct in the eye & accessory structures secrete and contain lysozyme which is an antibacterial enzyme(naturally occurring in tears). due to its acidity its responsible for killing some bacteria.

Besides the eye itself, there are the four muscles that move the eye and the accessory structures of the eye which include the eyelids and superficial epithelium of the eye, and the structures associated with the production, secretion, and removal of tears.The ophthalmic artery and veins and cranial nerves III, IV and V which move the muscles of the eye. The optic nerve (for sight) that leaves the back of the eye.

Tears help to keep viruses, bacteria, and foreign objects out of the eyes. However, many people's eyes overproduce tears in response to things like allergies. This can cause them to look distressed and contribute to problems like runny nose.

One advantage of weathering is that it dilutes dumped chemicals on soil surfaces. One disadvantage is that it tears down natural structures.

the structures of the lacrimal apparatus and the extrinsic eye musclesthe Accessories of the eye are: the Cilliary glands which are sweat glands between the eye lashes. the Palpebra and ocular Conjunctivas which are *Membranes that lines the eyelids *Connects to the surface of the eye *Secrete Mucus to lubricate the eye. the Lacrimal Apparatus *Dilute salt solution(tears) *Contains antibodies and lysozyme, it also helps protect and moinstens and lubricates the eyes. it empties into the nasal cavity. probably there are more but I don't know the others for sure. I'm also studying for an anatomy test based on the eye structures and stuff. good luck!
