  • Lipid Layer Thickness - what is the average?

    Hi. Just been to a Dry Eye Centre in London and had Lipview where I was told my lip layer thickness was 70 but not too worry as it wasn’t far off 100 which is normal. . I have since checked and have found out that normal is 70 and not 100!! Can someone confirm I have researched this correctly.

    Just checked again and it would appear that 100nm LLT is a normal measurement. Just need confirmation that this right. Also would be very interested in knowing what other dry eye sufferer LLT results are.

      Mine were 41nm and 47nm. The doctor said no dry eyes. I am still baffled by his statement. I showed reports to 2 more doctors. They said looks normal. And one of them even mentioned its a variable metric. WTH!

          Hi. Not sure I know what NIBUT. stands for. Do you mean tear break up time? Unfortunately they did not tell me but I suspect it is around 1 sec.

            I do wonder if the results are dependent on the operator and therefore subject to variation!
