Lash Impaction in Meibomian Gland Orifice

Purpose To dissect potential danger factors related with eyelash impaction into meibomian organ hole. Methods Retrospective audit of one tertiary center over a time of 10 years. Results In this review, 18 patients were incorporated, with a mean time of 61.6 years at analysis. Ten patients were indicative as visual bothering or unfamiliar body sensation. The area of the impaction included 15 nasal half and 3 fleeting portion of the cover, 6 upper top and 12 lower top, 8 right side and 10 remaining side. Hazard factors included dry eyes (10), hypersensitive conjunctivitis (4), extreme scouring of the eye (6), dozing on the eye (2), and ongoing phacoemulsification (1). Conclusions Ocular scouring from either visual sensitivity or dryness is related with impaction of the lash into the opening of the meibomian organ pipe.
