How To Do Meibomian Gland Expression Safely for MGD

Tips on Meibomian Gland Expression from the video:

  • Do this once a day.  It is not necessary to do it more than that.
  • There are a couple of different options on what to use:

Using a Q-tip

  • Use Heyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser by Eye Love and spray on the Q-tip so you know that it's damp.
  • Look in the mirror.
  • Start on one corner of your eye and roll down and across your entire eye lid.
  • Use a little pressure, but don't put too much.
  • Then, on the bottom lid, keep your eye closed and roll up.
    • The bottom lid's a bit tougher, so if you want you can just press right below that lower lash line all the way across.
    • Once you've done that, make sure your Q-tip is damp with Heyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser and run it across the lid margin to get all of the oil out.  

      Using your finger

      • You're going to do essentially the same thing...
      • Start on one corner and roll down all across your eyelid.
      • You can also just press the eyelid with your fingertip.
      • Then, using the Heyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser, spray your eyelids with it and let dry.

      That's it! You don't have to wash off the cleanser, either, as it's safe to let dry on your eyelids.

      Your eyes will feel better after a couple of weeks of following this protocol. You just really have to be consistent with it. Do this once a day. And let us know in the comments below if you have any questions or if you have any comments.

      [0:00:00] Happy Sunday! Dr. Jenna Zigler Here. We wanted to make a video today because a lot of you had asked about eyelid gland expression so we wanted to show you a couple different ways of doing that.

      [0:00:11] You want to do this probably about once a day not really more than that. so we're going to give you a couple different options here.

      [0:00:20] So the first one we're going to talk about is using a q-tip. This is Eye Love
      Lid and Lash Love and you're going to just spray that q-tip so you know that it's
      damp.

      [0:00:38] Look in the mirror that's the easiest and you're just going to start on one
      corner of your eye and you're going to roll down just like that across your entire eyelid. you want to put a little pressure, don't put too much, I don't want your eye bulging out. 

      [0:00:57] Then, keep your eye closed you're going to roll up the bottom lids a little tougher. If you want you can just kind of press right below that lower lash line all the way across. 

      [0:01:17] Then, once you've done that this q-tip here was wetted with that Eye Love Lid and Lash Solution and you're just going to scrape across here and get all of those oils out. 

      [0:01:49] Another way that you can do it without the q-tip is basically use your finger so you're going to do the same thing start on one corner and roll down just like that all across your lid.

      [0:02:02] Do the same here I just roll up or just like with the q- tip before you can just
      press and then using the Eyelash Solution you'll wet that q-tip. You don't want to
      use a dry q-tip because it will really irritate the tops of the glands.

      [0:02:26] I'm going to rub it across there, same thing here and get all those bad oils out.

      [0:02:37] At the end you're going to use that Eye Love Eyelid and Eyelash Solution again and you're just going to spray your eyelids with it. So, just spray it and then what I do is
      just kind of rub it in there.

      [0:02:57] I kind of have mascara on so I don't want to get it everywhere for you but really get it in there.

      [0:03:04] You're done, you don't have to wash it off. It's wonderful, your eyes will feel
      better after a couple weeks of doing this you just really have to be consistent with it so do it once a day.

      [0:03:13] Thanks everyone for watching and let us know in the comments below if you have any questions or if you've got any comments just leaving their thanks!

      Thanks so much Dr. Jenna for the demonstration. I want to say again how much your Heyedrate Lid and Lash Spray has helped me.

      I have mgd I was told by doctor to do warm compresses and squeeze on the eye gland I had 4 seconds of tbut buy doing the squessing every day the tbut went up to 11 seconds according to doc everything has improved but my eyes still feel bad is it true that you actually put inflammation by squessing the gland so I was wondering if I only do the warm compresses without the squessing would that keep my gland unclogged or not. Thank you

      I have had inflammation on my left eye lid for about a month and then got a Chalazion and had to hsve it drained! I still have inflammation and it seem to get better and than flare up again! Been having problems for 4 months now and been doing everything the optomolgist has told me to do! Like warm compresses and cleaning eyelid once a day! They did do a allergy test and that was. Lear. What else could it be?
