TFOS DEWS II Management and Therapy Report, section 2.1.1:

The report of the TFOS MGD Workshop reported that “lid hygiene is widely considered an effective mainstream therapy for MGD and blepharitis” [389]. However, compliance with following lid hygiene instruction is notoriously poor. A recent cross-sectional study of 207 subjects who were prescribed lid hygiene procedures (daily warm compresses and eyelid scrubs) found that only 55% were compliant after 6 weeks of use [390].
