@mcneeleyecenter Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD occurs when there is compromise to the function and/or structure of the meibomian glands in the eyelids that produce the protective oily layer of the tear film. This oil helps protect the ocular surface from disease and prevents the watery part of the tears from evaporating when your eyes are open. Without these oils, your eyes become more susceptible to the negative effects that dry climates (like Idaho), air conditioning, computer and device use, and other daily activities can have on the long term health of our eyes.
While there are multiple choices available for treating MGD, LipiFlow is the only FDA-cleared device for removing gland blockages and restoring gland function.
