Meibography is a diagnostic tool we have at Avenue Eyecare to help us determine the root cause of your dry eye disease. It images the oil glands, also called the “meibomian glands”. These glands are responsible for producing the oily layer of our tear film, which helps stabilize our tears to prevent dryness. We look for abnormalities such as atrophy which appears like shortened and disappearing glands indicating the patient has meibomian gland dysfunction. There are therapies we can recommend to maximize the function and prevent further loss of your oil glands.
