Results before/after wiping the lid margins using tap water in subjects with normal meibomian glands. In the box-and-whisker plots, the bottom of the box indicates the first quartile, and the top of the box indicates the third quartile. The band inside the box represents the median. To highlight suspected outliers, the upper whisker is set as the maximum or the third quartile+ 1.5 × IQR. The lower whisker indicates the minimum or the first quartile-1.5 × IQR. The bee swarm plot is a one-dimensional scatter plot with non-overlapping points. Note that because the placement of the dots in figures is randomly determined in the bee swarm plot, the dots are sometimes merged. ** Significant improvement; P < 0.05 and * Noted difference; P < 0.1 are demonstrated
