Explosive Meibomian Gland Expression
For those patients with meibomian gland disease, the expression of meibomian glands on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining a healthy ocular surface. In this video snippet, Dr. Fishman shows an “explosive” manual expression of a gland in a patient with MGD. Dramatic indeed, but not all that uncommon. In Dr. Fishman’s office, he has high speed and high resolution videos to record and document the “health status” of the glands. Not only is this important for Dr. Fishman’s analysis, but it provides his patients with an up-close & personal look at their own eyelids.
