Meibomian Gland Debridement and Expression

The meibomian glands are located on the eyelid margin and when functionally normally, they release oils onto the surface of the eye in order to decrease tear evaporation. In order for at-home therapy such as lid scrubs and hot compress to work effectively, your optometrist must first unblock the meibomian glands.
