KOL-Index: 92 The role of the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society (TFOS) Dry Eye Workshop (DEWS) II Diagnostic Methodology Subcommittee was 1) to identify tests used to diagnose and monitor dry eye disease (DED), 2) to identify those most appropriate to fulfil the definition of DED and its sub-classifications, 3) to propose the most appropriate order and technique to conduct these tests in a clinical ...

KOL-Index: 63 Meibomian glands secrete meibum, which gives rise to the lipid layer of the tear film and thereby prevents excessive evaporation of tear fluid. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a major causative condition of evaporative dry eye, which is more common than the aqueous-deficient type of dry eye. Noninvasive meibography relies on infrared light and an infrared-sensitive camera to reveal the ...

KOL-Index: 36 This review examines currently available non-pharmaceutical treatment modalities for meibomian gland dysfunction. A detailed search of the PubMed and MEDLINE databases was performed to identify original articles in English that have evaluated such nonpharmaceutical therapies in patients with this condition. Conventional therapies such as application of a warming compress, the practice of lid ...

KOL-Index: 26 Aqueous-deficient dry eye (ADDE) and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) can be refractory to therapy. Intense pulsed light (IPL) was recently introduced as an effective treatment for MGD. We here evaluated the efficacy of IPL combined with MG expression (MGX) compared with MGX alone (n = 23 and 20, respectively) for patients with refractory ADDE with mild MGD at three sites. Symptom score, ...

KOL-Index: 24 PURPOSE: To examine effects of alkali injury of the ocular surface on meibomian gland pathology in mice. METHODS: Three μL of 1 N NaOH were applied under general anesthesia to the right eye of 10-week-old BALB/c (n = 54) mice to produce a total ocular surface alkali burn. The meibomian gland morphology was examined at days 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 by stereomicroscopy and non-contact infrared ...

KOL-Index: 23 To analyze the relationship between systemic lipid profile levels and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) subtype in Korea. The ophthalmic data of 95 eyes and the serum lipid profiles of 95 patients were reviewed. These factors were compared with those of the general population using data from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES), which evaluated 2,917 ...

KOL-Index: 22 PURPOSE: To observe the morphology of the corneal cells and corneal nerve fibers in patients with type IV or V hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy (HSAN) by in vivo confocal microscopy and elucidate the mechanism leading to the loss of corneal sensation in this disease. METHODS: In vivo confocal microscopy was performed on the central cornea of the right eye in 3 patients with HSAN ...

KOL-Index: 21 PURPOSE: To review the published literature related to application of intense pulsed light (IPL) for treating meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). METHODS: The literature search included the PubMed database and used the keywords "Intense Pulsed Light and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction". RESULTS: IPL is a new instrumental treatment modality for MGD. This treatment modality was originally developed ...
