Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Leslie O'Dell, of Wheatlyn Eye Care, speaks to moderator Whitney Hauser, OD, of the Southern College of Optometry, about meibomian gland research from her private practice. She first heated the glands then conducted manual expression on participating patients. Results prompted her to collaborate with other thought leaders in writing a protocol on pretreatment, treatment, and after treatment management of a patient opting for manual expression.
