Fixed, firm, focal unyielding resistance was the most common finding when probing patients with obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction, regardless of gland expressibility, according to a study published in Cornea.
“The frequent intraductal fixed unyielding obstructions are consistent with clinical slit-lamp findings and confocal microscopy findings suggestive of periglandular fibrosis,” the authors wrote. “These probe findings offer a compelling hypothesis for the cause of ductal obstruction.”
