Original Title: Meibografia con luz infrarroja para enfermedades de glándulas de Meibomio
Authors' recommendations: CONCLUSIONS No studies assessing the diagnostic yield of infrared meibography in different conditions involving the meibomian glands have been found. One clinical practice guideline mentions the use of infrared meibography as a diagnostic alternative after using standard diagnostic technologies (symptom-assessment questionnaires, slit lamp examination). No Latin American coverage policies have been found. Some United States health sponsors consider this technology as experimental.
