Like I said before, the doctor in a hospital (I had to wait 5 weeks of waiting list to see a doctor since my erosions started!) said I had dry eyes due to MGD. He said “You glands are blocked”. His prescription included just eye drops and warm compresses.
Another doctor, on an internet forum, did enlighten me somewhat better. She said “You probably had adenoviral conjunctivitis, that led to MGD, which indeed can lead to sudden and severe eye dryness”. She also said I should really

So I am 34 and new to this dry eye thing. What triggered my condition? I still don't know for sure. Once thing I know: it started soon after an eye infection.
In January 2013 I developed an eye infection: swollen lids, red eyes, pus. I was stupid, and didn’t do much about it. It went away by itself after a week and a little. I felt fine.
3-4 weeks later it all began. I felt sudden sharp pain in my left eye that woke me up at night. Thought it was an eyelash. However,
Detection of meibomian glands and classification of meibography images.
Computational methods are presented that can automatically detect the length and width of meibomian glands imaged by infrared meibography without requiring any input from the user. The images are then automatically classified. The length of the glands are detected by first normalizing the pixel intensity, extracting stationary points, and then applying morphological operations. Gland widths are detected using
Do you remember when the term "Non Obvious MGD" emerged?
Well, here's a new term for its counterpart. Dr. Suzuki of Kyoto Pref. U. has coined the elegant, dignified term Meibomitis Related KeratoConjunctivitis (MRKC). Though personally I'd prefer to stick with what I've always used: Obvious MGD. Kind of a nice ring to it, wouldn't you say?
I can just hear the conversations now.
"Well," (snickers the patient during a visit to
Lid margins: sensitivity, staining, meibomian gland dysfunction, and symptoms.
PURPOSE.: Ocular surface sensitivity plays a role in dry eye and ocular comfort through its probable influence on the neural feedback loop that regulates tear secretion, but little is known specifically about the role of lid or lid margin sensitivity in ocular surface health. The aim of this study was to characterize the eyelid margin and explore the relationships between lid margin sensitivity and staining,
