Dry eye sufferers know just how irritating the symptoms of dry eye can be, and how much it can impact daily life. It can result from aging, hormonal changes, environmental conditions, UV exposure, and excessive screen use. Symptoms include redness, irritation, gritty sensation, tearing, burning and mild itching.
Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the most common form of dry eye. It occurs when the meibomian glands in the eyelids become clogged or blocked, or when the oil they produce is too thick or of poor quality. As a result, the tears evaporate at a quicker rate and the eyes become dry. It is important that MGD is treated, as it can result in decreased Meibomian gland functionality and styes. The ultimate goal when treating MGD is to unblock the Meibomian glands, which leads to the restoration of a healthy tear film and reduction or resolution of dry eye symptoms.
