Meibomian gland dysfunction, or MGD, is one of the most challenging issues for eye physicians. Some researchers believe that up to 70 percent of chronic dry eye may actually be due to MGD, not classic dry eye. Join Dr. Gregory Smith, renowned attending surgeon at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, as he discusses MGD and his research that demonstrates how Omega-3 in the re-esterified triglyceride form can combat this medical issue.
