Dry Eye Disease (DED) induced by Meibomian Glands Dysfunction (MGD) is a tear film disorder which can be produced by excessive evaporation of tears in over 86% of cases.
This evaporation is induced by the obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian glands that are located in the eyelids and are responsible for producing the tears lipid layer. When these are obstructed, they do not produce enough oily components for the tear film, which consequently evaporates quicker and causes damage to the ocular surface and eye discomfort.
