To evaluate the efficacy of a new Orgahexa eye warmer mask for patients with simple meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) in a prospective comparative study. Twenty right eyes of 20 patients with simple MGD, and 22 right eyes of 22 healthy controls were studied. Subjects were allocated to Orgahexa or conventional eye mask wear for 10 min (short-term study), and for 2 weeks (long-term study). Eyelid temperature measurements, slit lamp examination, tear film break-up time, Schirmer test, vital staining, tear film lipid layer interferometry, and dry eye symptomatology scoring with visual analog scales were performed. The Orgahexa eye warmer improved both tear function and ocular surface status, and decreased symptoms significantly without any complications. The Orgahexa eye warmer is a simple, safe, and convenient method, which seems to improve the ocular surface status and tear functions in patients with simple MGD.
