Re: Eyelid drooping

Hi folks,

I attended my routine follow up appointment on Tuesday. I spoke to my consultant about my ptosis. As a result of our conversation I have been referred to the oculoplastics team to get my eyelid fixed.
I shall let you know how I get on as and when.

Warmest regards.

Paul

Re: Eyelid drooping

Hi, My graft is about 3 years old now and I too have a bit of a droopy eyelid since the surgery. I thought unit all that this was due to post op swelling but after all this time I guess probably not. I have noticed that some says the drooping appears worse than others. I am currently only on steroid...

Re: Glasses post grafting.

Thanks for your reply and the info in it. :-) I'm kicking myself for not asking but had a few things to do that day. I guess I'll just need to wait and see what they have planned. Was it your choice to get a GA for the removal of your stitches? I think my consultant said that my sutures would be rem...

Hi, I hand my left eye graft done in april this year. I attended my routine outpatient appointment yesterday and seen another doctor who is not the consultant and he says that they will look at fitting me with glasses in 6 weeks or so.

Re: KC people living in Scotland

Thanks Andrew, I know things will take time especially with the DALK method, I guess I had been hoping to be one of the very lucky who get a good result right away. But you are correct it will take time and the health of the graft is paramount at the moment. Like I said above, if anyone has any ques...
