Project Description

The purpose of this three-part illustration was to: highlight the anatomy of the meibomian glands (the small exocrine glands that line the rim of the eyelid) within the context of the eye anatomy (parts A and B); and to illustrate the progression of meibomian gland clogs during Dry Eye Disease (part C). The illustrations, in support of Sight Sciences’ mission to educate doctors and patients alike on Dry Eye, do not include labels or supporting written information, as they are meant to serve as the visuals to educational lectures, booth presentations, and one-on-one patient conversations and would be modified to include written material as appropriate for each commercial audience.  The individual components, though closely linked, can also be broken up for a longer, more in-depth story.
