Dry eye syndrome is a broad term that describes a variety of eye symptoms such as redness, scratchiness, blurred vision, discomfort with contact lenses, crusty eyes in the morning, dry and watery eyes. While much research has been conducted and much more is still being conducted, there is agreement that there is a link between Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and Dry Eye Syndrome.
While much research has been conducted and much more is still being conducted, a consensus has been found that there is a relationship between Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and Dry Eye Syndrome. Meibomian glands are the lipid and mucin secreting part of the eyelid; these glands can become blocked or under-function, resulting in a decrease in the amount of lipid and mucin in the tear and altering the water lipid mucin ratio, which is critical to preventing the water in the tear from evaporating and causing dry eye symptoms. Here at Dynamic Speciality Care, we offer a wide range of diagnostic as well as therapeutic approaches for patients with DED.
