Abstract Details


To describe different morphological patterns of the palpebral glands using a novel non-contact meibography system.


A sample of 30 patient was studied at the ophthalmology department of Hospital Universitario Fundación Alcorcón of Madrid.


The upper and lower eyelids glands were observed after eversion using the Oculus Keratograph 5M, a non-contact meibography system based in placido discs with an infrared illumination system. The glandular tissue loss and destructuration was scored in grades from 0 to 3 depending on the size of the affected area (0= no loss or destructuration of meibomian glands; 1= area loss less than 1/3 of the glandular area 2=area loss between 1/3 and 2/3; 3= area loss more than 2/3). Different cases are presented to illustrate the morphological characteristics of glandular tissue most commonly encountered in clinical practice.


In all cases, the obtained images allowed to classify the morphology and loss of the glandular tissue in one of the established patterns.


This non-contact infrared meibography digital system provides images of the meibomian glands in a quick and non-invasive way. The obtained meibographies can allow to correlate the findings in the glandular morphology with clinical symptoms and other parameters of the ocular surface.
