Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

The Meibomian Glands are located in the eyelids that produce an oily lipid that helps to keep tears stable and prevent evaporation or premature leakage of tears. The oliy lipid also makes the eyelids airtight when shut.

If the Meibomian Glands become dysfunctional, extreme dryness of the eyes and irritation of the eyelids can occur.
