Tear Film & Mebomian Gland

It is situated along the upper and lower lid marginIt is responsible for secreting the lipid layer.Lipid component is important for reducing the evaporation of the tear film.
Mebomian gland dysfunction:
Leads to increase in evaporation of the tear film
Decrease of tear production leads to“aqueous deficiency dry eyes”
This leads to“evaporative dry eyes”.
The tear film is made up of three components:
Mucus component(innermost)
Aqueous(central and the main layer)
Lipid layer(outermost)
So tear film is like a sandwich,the central tear film being made to temporarily stick to the eye by mucous layer whereas the outer lipid layer delays its evaporation.Anything which affects any of these three layers will lead to dry eyes.
