Re: HOW LONG AFTER STITCHES ARE OUT CAN U TRY CONTACTS?

Hi, George, good question. It would depend on the type of graft. I had Left Eye DALK, and my sutures were removed much earlier than most, but, I wasn't allowed to start wearing a lens for nearly six months after surgery. I've never been prescribed hybrid lenses before. Although I am researching them...

Re: Vision no better 4 months after cornea transplant

It's frustrating that surgeons measure the 'success' of a graft by whether the cornea is clear and healing well, and not by the visual outcome. ... I cannot agree more. I think that point is an example of confusing terminology: what the medical profession focuses on versus what the patient focuses ...

Re: A blast from the past

Hi, Anne. Thanks for the info. I've been looking at the potential of setting on a KC FB page as well, maybe to repost all the news, details, and updates etc under one banner as it were, but to also promote the KCSHSA here specifically.

Re: Vision no better 4 months after cornea transplant

Yes, I've had a transplant as well - Left Eye DALK - approximately ten years ago. Somewhat like you, I developed asymmetrical keratoconus; although my right eye was pretty good, my left got bad fairly quickly. My cornea was as keratoconic as it gets, no lens or combination of lenses would fit, and I...

A blast from the past

Hi guys. It has been far too long since I was here last. Where does the time go? Anyway, I received a letter from the group yesterday, which prompted me to reactivate my account and get involved again. I don't know if anyone remembers me or not - apart from one or two, most of the names all seem dif...

I'm dying with a wicket migraine but I feel compelled to offer my 2 cents on this. Smoking, well, we all know the health risks. But from my own personal experience, I had a graft - as most know already - DALK left eye on Jan 22nd of this year. I smoke between 20-30 a day, not an advertisement hey, b...

Hotmail and live.com

As some may have noticed recently when you goto hotmail the url would change to login.live.com ... I've been curious about that for the past month, at first I thought it was hijacked so dug into it and was following the reasons and the beta testing of this so called 'new service' that allows multius...
