Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Here you can see an eye with prominant meibomian glands. These glands produce oil that is important to keep the tear film from evaporating too quickly. Some people have MGD (meibomian gland dysfunction) and these glands clog up and cause eye irritation (aka. blepharitis).
