Here take a look:
Look right behind the upper eye lashes. We shouldn’t see those little pointy guys. The oil coming out of those glands should be more like olive oil than crisco.
When we give the lid a little pressure around :08-:013 the oil starts to come out properly.
Now look at the :25 mark. Try looking through that oil sheen. No bueno.
It all adds up to dry, irritated, red eyes with fluctuating vision. Clear. Blurry. Clear. Blurry.
And here’s a good friend of mine who was tired of 2 week long goopy, red, irritated left eye. Yup-her glands are not happy especially that one right in the middle.
We love taking the time and utilizing technology to educate our patients on the why of what we are doing.
