Michael Lange OD talks about Natural treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and dry eyes. Most ODs and MDs are prescribing oral and topical antibiotics for meibomian gland dysfunction and blepharitis. Is this really necessary? Oral and even topical antibiotics have potential unwanted side effects especially if used often. I have had tremendous success using a combination of Natural treatments to help eliminate almost all signs and symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and dry eyes. Patients appreciate the natural approach to helping them with their condition. If done properly this is extremely effective. Doctors will have to explain to the patients these procedures in some detail to be effective against their meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eyes. If we clear the glands then the glands will secrete a healthy tear film and the dry eyes will go away. All that is needed is a Brueder mask or hot compress of some type, Fortifeye Super Omega, Fortifeye Focus, a good unpreserved artificial tear (oasis tears plus, retaine or Blinks) , hydration, great lid hygiene and proper diet.
