It is not something that we actively do on patients. When somebody comes in, I will express their glands but we don’t actively probe them. Yes, I think that there are definitely other doctors out there that do that and I am sure there are patients out there that benefit from it. However, I think if you are doing everything with your diet correctly, and you have all of that under control, you shouldn’t have to have your meibomian glands probed.
