I suffer from MGD for almost 8 years. Maybe caused by Accutane when I was younger? I don't know. I don't wear contacts and I never did the Lasik surgery.
As many of you, I have tried tons of things to get better: Asazite, lotemax, restasis, punctual plugs, acupuncture, Omega3 all over the place etc... you name it, I did it!
Warm compresses and eyelid cleaning foam have helped, everything else has not.
I haven't tried the probing or the laser yet.
I made an appointment at UCLA with Dr Rex Hamilton for an evaluation and maybe a session of Lipiflow if I'm a good candidate.
I'll probably do only one eye to start. I would love to get more feedbacks on this new procedure. According to what I read so far on this forum, the results don't seem outstanding. I'm desperate and I really feel the need to do something about it (something that I can afford). The laser and the probing are much more expensive than the lipiflow and the feedbacks on these 2 procedures don't seem better than the ones on the lipiflow.
I would love to hear from anyone who got a successful result with any of these new procedures.
Thank you all
