REVIEW
Adam R Thode, Robert A Latkany
Meibomian gland (MG) dysfunction (MGD) is a multifactorial, chronic condition of the eyelids, leading to eye irritation, inflammation and ocular surface disease. Initial conservative therapy often includes a combination of warm compresses in addition to baby shampoo or eyelid wipes. The practice of lid hygiene dates back to the 1950s, when selenium sulfide-based shampoo was first used to treat seborrhoeic dermatitis of the eyelids.

PURPOSE: To compare the effectiveness of a single LipiFlow(®) treatment with combined lid warming and massage in patients with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). METHODS: In this prospective, randomized, crossover, observer-masked clinical trial, subjects were randomized to receive either a single 12-min LipiFlow-LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation (LTP) system treatment or to perform combined twice-daily lid warming and massage for 3 months. All subjects were examined before, and 1 and 3 months after initiation of treatments...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the correlation between tear film lipid layer thickness and other objective measurements such as tear film break-up time (TBUT), upper and lower meibomian gland losses, and Schirmer 1 test in patients with obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and normal controls. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. METHODS: Thirty eyes of 30 patients with obstructive MGD and 25 eyes of 25 normal controls were enrolled. Lipid layer thickness was measured using an interferometer...
