  • Growth of Meibomian Gland Tissue after Probing in Patients with MGD

    Dr. Steven L Maskin has written a professional paper in the British Journal of Ophthalmology. It is dated June 7, 2017. The title is: Growth of Meibomian Gland Tissue after Intraductal Meibomian Gland Probing in Patients with Obstructive Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.

    Purpose: Investigated the impact of meibomian gland probing (MGP) on the upper lids of patients with obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction (o-MGD).
    Methods: Conducted study to compare pre-MGP/post-MGP probing using infrared meibography. The study showed signs of MG growth within the viewing field.
    Results: There was a significant increase in total glandular area and a significant increase in the mean individual glandular area of these lids.
    Conclusion: MGP was associated with increased MG tissue area and growth of atrophied MGs as viewed on meibography.

    Probing has worked for me. I have been a patient of Dr. Maskin's for six years. I hope that patients and doctors take a look at this study, and hopefully gain more understanding of this technique.
