Dry eye - Meibomian Gland dysfunction
Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a common eye condition, yet many people don't realize they have it. You get it when there's a problem with a few dozen tiny glands in your eyelids that help make the oil layer of your tears. The most common type, obstructive MGD, happens when the gland openings get clogged, and less and less oil reaches the eye surface.
Lipiflow - What is Lipiflow? The Lipiflow procedure is a curative procedure where a device that produces heat and mild lid pressure is applied to the patient's eyelids (most patients state it feels like an eyelid massage), so that the blocked lipids will flow back normally into the tear fill.
