My oil started off a bit thick and cloudy with some blocked glands and this doesn't seem to have changed. I have one more session booked in April and a review then but so far this doesn't seem like a miracle cure for me. I do have aqueous problems too though and maybe some corneal neuropathy which might be why I feel no better.
    Some people felt change after 6 or 7 session. your TBut doubled and it is a big success. dont lose hope

      I am also taking hydroxychloroquine and leflunamide for my Sjogrens. When I started the hydroxychloroquine for my Sjogrens fatigue and arthritis my eyes seemed to get better after a couple of months. That lasted for about 6 months and they have been worse than ever since then.

      Again, really hoping that IPL helps as I have truly exhausted my options
      Hi Konadog

      Hope you now have found more relief. If not, good to look into these:

      GLA: Have you added this? study shows the combination of GLA + omega 3 works more effective than omega 3 alone.

      demodex: do you use lid cleanser/wiper with tea tree oil, Cliradex for example.

      Lid cleanser with pure HOCL, like Avenova, is effective/safe, to control bacteria overgrow.

      TrueTear & xiidra drop

      Good luck!
