  • Punctal Plugs making my MGD worse?

    So I've been quadra-plugged for over 2 weeks now. I've experienced improvement in moisture in my eyes and have even had a little excess from time to time. The issue that I'm having right now is my eyes seem to squeegee out some excess moisture that collects in the creases of my eyelids. This stuff is rather gunky and dries to a crusty salty substance. I have both an aquaeous deficiency and lipid deficiency. I'm wondering if my tears are drying up along my mebomian glands and clogging them.

    While I may over tear in an area of high humidity and low air flow. My eyes feel just as bad (perhaps even a bit worse) in environments with a lot of air flow.
