There is an obvious neglect in research for meibomian gland dysfunction. I have written to the top eye institutes about this concern. I also would like to know where is the best place to donate for research in this area. I know that researchers have to apply for grants, but where is the foundation that is most likely accessed for research on MGD. Thank you so much
In a world peopled with the blind and the almost blind, and a finite limit on the monies that can be spent on medical research does it seem so unusual that a disease that does not blind, does not disfigure and that can in 98% of cases be controled with lid hygeine, topical and/or oral antibiotics and medicated lids scrubs and with a limited commercial market that this is not a burning issue at the top of researchers and pharmaceutical companies priorities?
