Re: Could this be KC?

Your migraines sound dreadful - I hope you're talking to your doctor about them and whether there's anything that can give you relief from those symptoms. And while some of the other symptoms you have could be KC, there are others like the 'visual snow' that don't sound like KC, at least in my exper...

Re: Could this be KC?

KC is very individual, so I don't think there are any rules about how it starts, and none about how it will progress. I was already wearing rigid contact lenses for what I thought was just short sight when I was diagnosed. And the first things I noticed were some double vision in certain lighting co...

Re: Could this be KC?

Hi Someo559, Yes, this could be KC, but then again, your symptoms could have a different cause. Only an eye doctor actually examining your eyes would be able to tell you one way or another. KC usually progresses pretty slowly. Collagen crosslinking (CXL) is designed to stop the progression and rigid...

Re: Any way to reduce halos when driving?

Hi David,

If you put 'night driving' in the search for this forum, you might find some other ideas.
I don't drive any more, but a lot of us find this a real problem.

Re: Where can I get hybrids in London or Kent ?

Sorry, I don't know what the costs are, but for practitioners, have you looked at the list on our website (the link was in my first post in reply to you).

Re: Diagnosed with KC but unsure of treatment given

Hi Ben and welcome,
That does sound confusing and I'd have thought you need to contact the optometrist to check this out. Are you getting your lenses/glasses from a High Street optometrist or from a hospital eye clinic?

Urgent message re London meeting this Saturday

I have just been told that the Clinical Tutorial Unit has moved from the main hospital to Moorfields administrative buildings at 15 Ebenezer Street. This is just a very short walk from the hospital - simply cross the main road (City Road) and go up either Provost Street or Brittania Walk. Ebenezer S...

Re: To all who have joined this forum recently

Hi Lisa and welcome, though I'm sorry such a nasty ulcer has brought you here. Can't help with your question on how long your pain and discomfort will last, I'm afraid, though hopefully you have another check up soon. The only corneal ulcer I've ever had was much less serious and cleared up in a wee...

Re: BEST SOFT CONTACT LENS FOR POST GRAFT?

Our eyes are so individual, whether pre or post graft, that as we say so often here, a lens that works well for one person won't necessarily suit someone else. So I don't think it's possible to say what's the 'best'. I hope you find the one that works for you.

Re: Next London meeting 14th October

I hope we'll see lots of members at this meeting next week.
And the KC Group will have a stand at Moorfields on Thursday 12th October for World Sight Day. So if you have an appointment that day, do come along and say hello.
