The Making of the TFOS MGD Report

Dry eye affects over 40 million people in the United States and it is believed that only a fraction of this patient group are accurately diagnosed and treated. One of the major causes of dry eye is meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). David A. Sullivan, PhD, Kelly Nichols, OD, PhD, explain the mission of TFOS (Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society) to develop a comprehensive blueprint for dry eye diagnosis and management. The TFOS MGD Report was published in 2010.
