The dorsal nasal artery, also known as the dorsonasal artery, is a terminal branch of the ophthalmic artery.
Arising as a terminal branch of the ophthalmic artery, the dorsal nasal artery exits the orbit after piercing the orbital septum above the medial canthal tendon (medial palpebral ligament). It then runs along the nose to anastomose with the lateral nasal branch of the angular artery.
