Mechanicsburg Eye Associates: Meibomian Gland

If you suffer from chronic dry eye symptoms, your condition may be related to an inadequate protective layer of oil in your tears.  This deficiency of oil may result from a blockage in the oil-producing glands in the eyelids, known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.

Common symptoms are scratchy, sandy, or burny eyes.  Less recognized but very common symptoms include; intermittent foreign body sensation, patchy blurry vision that improves with blinking especially during extended computer use or reading activities, and intolerance to contact lens wear.

The Mechanicsburg Eye Associates are offering a new treatment option for those with dry eyes.
