Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Treatment

Are you experiencing persistent eye discomfort, such as dryness or irritation, and wondering if it could be more than just everyday strain? These symptoms may indicate Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), a common yet often overlooked eye condition. At Eye Clinic London, under the expert guidance of Mr. Samer Hamada, we specialise in diagnosing and treating this condition, ensuring your eye health is in the best hands.

Understanding Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

MGD occurs when the Meibomian glands in the eyelids, which produce the oil layer of the eye's tear film, become blocked or dysfunctional. This leads to a deficiency in the tear film, causing various eye discomforts. It's a leading cause of dry eye syndrome and can significantly impact your daily life.

Types and Symptoms

Symptoms of MGD

Common symptoms include:

  • Persistent eye dryness
  • A gritty or burning sensation
  • Redness and irritation
  • Blurred vision, especially after long periods of screen use
Causes and Contributing Factors

Causes and Contributing Factors

Various factors contribute to MGD, including aging, hormonal changes, a history of contact lens wear, and prolonged exposure to digital screens. Environmental factors like windy or dry climates can also exacerbate the condition.

How Long Does Meibomian Gland Disfunction Last?

Meibomian gland dysfunction can last from a few weeks to a lot longer; it’s not something that can be easily cured without medical intervention. You can ease your symptoms via home remedies, but they may not reach the root cause.

Untreated meibomian gland dysfunction can lead to complications like blepharitis (a condition in which your eyes become inflamed and swollen). Most commonly, MGD causes dry eye disease and increases your risk of infection after eye surgery.

This is why it is so important to get MGD diagnosed and treated by an ophthalmologist at Eye Clinic London. Leaving your condition untreated will only cause it to worsen over time, and eventually, the treatments necessary won’t be so easy.
