What is Meibomianitis?

Description of the disease

Meibomianitis is an inflammatory disease of the Meibomian glands of the eyelids, which is most commonly caused by a bacterial infection. The Meibomian glands are located in the upper and lower eyelids and are responsible for producing an oily secretion that helps to moisturize the eye.


  • Acute Meibomianitis
  • Chronic Meibomianitis


  • Pain in the eyelid
  • Swelling
  • Redness of the eyelid
  • Secretion


The main causes of Meibomianitis are stagnation of secretion in the Meibomian gland and a bacterial infection, most commonly caused by Staphylococcus aureus.


The diagnosis of Meibomianitis is based on symptoms and visual examination by an ophthalmologist.


Treatment of Meibomianitis includes the use of antibiotics, local anti-inflammatory eye drops, heat therapy to stimulate the outflow of secretions from the glands, as well as hygiene procedures for the eyelids.


  • Proper eyelid care
  • Avoid self-medication
