Eyelid Conditions

Meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and Demodex impact a wide range of patients. In this issue of Contact Lens Update, Alisa Sivak poses some questions about how eye care professionals communicate with patients about these conditions, Milton Hom recounts the ways in which he learned to pay more attention to conditions affecting his patients’ eyelids, William Ngo reviews an alternative technique for isolating and viewing Demodex (Mastota 2013) and Etty Bitton shares her experiences in differentiating Demodex from blepharitis. Be sure to look for our patient handout on meibomian gland dysfunction! You will find it within the editorial, along with a short survey requesting your input.
