Meibomian Gland Evaluator

The Meibomian Gland Evaluator (MGE)

The MGE is a handheld instrument used by a physician to evaluate meibomian glad secretions during a Dry Eye examination. This instrument provides a standardized method to apply consistent, gentle pressure, similar to the pressures applied during a normal blink, to the lower eyelid.

The presence of liquid on a meibomian gland orifice during expression with the MGE, indicates the meibomian gland is not obstructed.
