Meibomian gland dysfunction is one of the most common eye disorders observed in clinical practice. It applies to almost 50% of the population, especially people using contact lenses. It is believed that meibomian gland dysfunction is the most common cause of abnormal stability and integrity of the tear film. Despite this, there is no commercially available equipment for the diagnosis. The article proposes the construction of an optical sensor and a computer system for the rapid, non-invasive diagnosis of meibomian gland dysfunction. The designed hardware and software as well as preliminary results of clinical research are also described.
