Meibomian Gland Expression

Attention pimple poppers!
If you secretly love watching pimple popping videos, you’ll probably get the same satisfaction from watching MEIBOMIAN GLAND EXPRESSION (aka squeezing)! If not, you should probably skip this video 😉

Meibomian glands are located in your eyelids, and they secrete the oily component of tears which keeps them from evaporating. When they are blocked or not producing enough oil, that is a leading cause of dry eye syndrome. They can also get clogged with makeup, so make sure you thoroughly clean your eyelids right to the base of your eyelashes every night.

If you suffer from redness, gritty/sandy feeling, stinging, occasional blurry vision, or uncontrollable watering – call (905) 666-4848 to get an eye exam to determine whether you have Dry Eye Syndrome. Yes it sounds weird, but even watery eyes is a sign of dryness!

For now, please enjoy this wonderful video of meibomian gland expression Imagine how nice it would feel after you open up those clogged pores! #FunFriday #OnlyFunForDrLee
