According to a recent study1, 86 percent of dry eye patients suffer from Evaporative Dry Eye. Left untreated, Evaporative Dry Eye is a chronic, progressive disease that will worsen over time. Patients who undergo a LipiView screening gain unprecedented insight into their disease to make informed decisions about treatment if they are a candidate for LipiFlow.
