A new study linking increased eyelid sensitivity to decreased function of the eyelid margins is presented in the article – ” Lid Margins: Sensitivity, Staining, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, and Symptoms”, appearing in the October issue of Optometry and Vision Science, official journal of the American Academy of Optometry.
