Getting the measure of meibomian glands

Top questions answered, new research results and how to use in practice. What is the normal appearance of meibomian glands in young people? Are those glands affected by contact lens wear? Andrew Pucker’s editorial reviews the evidence to answer several commonly asked questions such as these. The clinical relevance of new research on dry eye and meibomian gland changes in young adults is discussed by Andrea Lasby in the feature article, and Mariam Alkawally’s study on the effects of eyeliner on the lid margin is shared in the conference highlight. Finally, a brand new feature is launched in this issue, with Andrea Lasby giving a view from practice by sharing an extremely relevant clinical case, addressing dry eye and poor contact lens tolerance in one of her patients.
