The Shifting Sands of Dry Eye and MGD - Expert Perspective

September 15, 2017, 2:45 PM - 4:45 PM


This course will look at Meibomian Gland Dysfunction MGD which is one of the main causes of dry eye disease and ocular surface disease. We will explore the work up for patients with MGD, including meibomian gland diagnostic expression, overall lid and demodex evaluation, validated patient questionnaires as well as tear osmolarity. We will discuss imaging of the meibomian glands and new treatments for restoring function to the glands. Finally, we will discuss strategies for long term maintenance of lid hygiene.
