We suggest changing the incorrect term of "sinus venosus sclerae" to the exact and logical term of "sinus aquosus sclerae" since this sinus does not contain venous blood, but humor aquosus. We further suggest the name changing "ductus nasolacrimalis" to "ductus lacrimonasalis" signifying thus the exact direction of the flow of the tears.
