Probing of Meibomian Gland for Blepharitis
Patients who suffer from meibomian gland dysfunction/ blepharitis may find relief with a new method that probes the intraductal meibomian glands. By using disposable, stainless steel, sterile solid-wire probe cannulas, each gland is probed individually to relieve inflammatory symptoms of obstructive gland.
After the treatment, patients report to have decreased tenderness or soreness along the lid margin. Some may also feel improved lubrication, less friction or more comfort on blinking and less light sensitive.
