Code H02.8, Other specified disorders of eyelid, has been expanded and a new subcategory (H02.88-) created for Meibomian gland dysfunction of eyelid. Unique codes were created for right upper eyelid (H02.881), right lower eyelid (H02.882), right eye unspecified eyelid (H02.883), left upper eyelid (H02.884), left lower eyelid (H02.885) and left eye unspecified eyelid (H02.886), unspecified eye, unspecified eyelid (H02.889), right eye, upper and lower eyelids (H02.88A), and left eye, upper and lower eyelids (H02.88B).Meibomian glands are the tiny oil glands that line the margin of the eyelids (the edges that touch when the eyelids are closed). These glands secrete oil, which coats the surface of the eyes and keeps the water component of tears from evaporating. Together, the water and the oil layer make up the tear film. Meibomian gland dysfunction refers to abnormality of the meibomian glands where they do not secrete enough oil into the tears. The clinical signs and symptoms of Meibomian gland dysfunction include distinct changes in viscosity and clarity of expressed contents from the Meibomian glands, increased tear film osmolarity, which may be reflected by complaints of burning and stinging, and premature evaporation, leading to decreased tear-film stability. This condition is also a leading cause of dry eye syndrome.
