Not often. Usually, the wear is concentrated on the top surface where the cam contacts them. Dishing, scoring, etc. are grounds for replacing the lifters AND the cam responsible for the wear.

The screen can be inspected in a somewhat limited way by removing the stator housing. There's a port below and behind the flywheel through which you can see the screen.
