Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)

MGD, also termed posterior blepharitis, is the most common form of lid margin disease. In the early stages, patients are often asymptomatic, but if left unmanaged, MGD can cause or exacerbate dry eye symptoms and eyelid inflammation. The oil glands become blocked with thickened secretions. Chronically clogged glands eventually become unable to secrete oil which results in permanent changes in the tear film and dry eyes. Symptoms include:

  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Stickiness
  • Watering
  • Light Sensitivity
  • Red Eyes
  • Foreign Body Fensation
  • Chalazion/Styes
  • Intermittent Blurry Vision

I enjoy my appointments with Dr. Gross. She is through and kind. Her staff is very nice and caring. My favorite person there is Randi. She is so sweet and personable (they all are) and I love to chat with her. I feel Dr. Gross takes great care of me. Her office is convenient getting in and out. All around great experience. I have been seen at the Frederick office for many years.
