  • How long for warm compress routine to help with MGD?

    Hi all, I've been doing a warm compress and eyelid massage for about 2 weeks now to treat my MGD. About how long before I should notice an improvement in my symptoms?

    My optometrist said it could be 2 or more months.

    Hi Johno_87 ,
    Based on my research :
    Improvements after 1 month : speed score + OSDI score + lissamine green test
    Improvements after 3 months : OSDI score + functional glands + TBUT + fluorescein test
    Studies shown that after 3 months : twice as many functional glands using Meibopatch, while 3 times as many functional glands with Lipiflow.
