I have EDS and so does my niece. My niece who is 35 years old recently went to the eye doctor and was told she had Meibomian gland dysfunction. They wanted to do a procedure called Lipiflow. Is anyone familiar with this dysfunction? Is it related to EDS? Has anyone with EDS done the Lipiflow treatment? Any other alternatives? Thanks so much!
Meibomian gland function is common in the general population — very common, in fact. The Lipiflow procedure is a great procedure — but it is pricey. Like less expensive procedures, it also needs to be redone periodically. If expense is a factor, you can ask your doctor about alternative lid treatments which can also work well for you.
