How can meibomian gland dysfunction be treated?

I d like to read about treatment for plugged eyelid oil glands. My former eye doctor diagnosed this and manually expressed the oil glands. He said there are machines that can do this. I ve moved and will be going to a new eye doctor. The office has those machines. YYYY@YYYY
