Abstract :

Aim: To study Meibomian gland dysfunction and serum lipid profile. Method–100 cases MGD were included in study. Thorough clinical examination by slit lamp bio microscope, Tear film eak–up time(TFBUT) & Shirmers I test(SIT) was done to diagnose the probable etiology of dry eye and were evaluated for posterior blepharitis and Meibomian gland dysfunction .Serum fasting lipid profile was also seen. Result: More than one third of cases were grade 2 severities of meibomitis followed by grade 1 and grade 3.Half of the patients with grade 3 severity of meibomitis were found to have high cholesterol. High triglycerides were seen in grade 2 and grade 3 severities of meibomitis. High LDL levels were associated with severity of meibomitis. Conclusion: Patients with Meibomian gland dysfunction may have abnormal serum cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL levels.
