Meibomian Gland Expression

A dry eye treatment where the Meibomian glands are manually expressed using an instrument specially developed by Dr. Robert Lin. Often times patients who experience Meibomian Gland Dysfunction will suffer from stagnant secretions in their glands. Stagnant secretions can cause a blockage at the gland opening, irritation to the eye, inadequate eye lubrication, and proper prevention of tear evaporation. Draining the glands through manual expression can help promote the production of new secretions.
