  • Fourth LipiView

    I had my fourth LipiView (assessment). My scores declined (i.e., lipid layers decreased). I don't know why my numbers decreased except that maybe it was due to my not wearing moisture chambers the entire day prior to the test. But who knows?!?! I will go again in March or April to be re-assessed and I'll post another update.

      Hi spmcc,
      I'm just wondering what the cost to benefit ratio is with LipiFlow? Based on your experience so far, does the cost outweigh the benefit?

        so it doesnt sound like Lipiflow lasts the12 months they claim it does? am i correct on this? thanks.. i was considering it cause they offer it outside of st.louis-about 3 hours from me

          Curious as to if you feel any better?

            Yes, I'm feeling better... but I am cautiously optimistic (as everyone is who has suffered from this for years and had many failures).

            As for cost to benefit ratio, I think only time will tell. I have never heard any claims that LipiFlow shows results within a certain amount of time and remains for a certain amount of time. I'm waiting for my next assessment (March or April) to figure out if my latest scores were an anomaly or the beginning of a downward trend.

            In general, my best treatments so far are having all puncta sealed and wearing Wileys 24/7.

            FYI My diagnosis is ocular rosacea since 1995. I have never had refractive surgery.
