In Your Dry Eye Mystery Solved, ophthalmologist Steven Maskin, a top expert in the field, offers insights into Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), a widely prevalent yet often misunderstood disease that can lead to Dry Eye syndrome. While his previous book Reversing Dry Eye Syndrome (Yale University Press, 2007) covered the basics of the syndrome, Maskin’s latest work delves into his recent discoveries and treatments for MGD, which involves the blockage of the oil-producing tear glands within the eyelids. As these glands play a crucial role in maintaining clear vision and comfortable eyes, disruptions can lead to severe pain and a range of associated symptoms.
