Meibomian Gland Disease treatment

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), or posterior blepharitis, is one of the most common diseases that we treat in our practice. It is crucial that MGD is effectively treated because it affects the quality of the tear film, causing discomfort and visual symptoms. MGD can lead to diseases such as eye in fections, styes or chalazia, which can be painful and unappealing.

Treatment includes Meibomian gland expression, prescribing topical antibiotic drops, ointments and oral antibiotics as well as maintaining a regimen of warm compresses and eyelid cleansing.
