Welcome to the forum. The long wait for a first appointment is probably the worst bit of all this. In an emergency you could always just present at the eye casualty in Gartnavel Hospital. I guess that you are not seeing a hspital optometrist, they can always arrange a fast track to the ophthalmologist.

All the best

Welcome back! It would be good if you made it into one of the Scottish Group meetings. We meet in the Chaplaincy Centre at Strathclyde University (John Street: really close to the station on Queen Street).

Look forward to meeting you.

Hello

I was born and bred in Glasgow and still live and work in there now.

I sue people for a living (I work in a lawyer's office dealing with road traffic accidents on behalf of insurance companies - NOT an ambulance chaser!!)

I play guitar, love motorsports (speedway racing my favourite) and music is very important to me.

Hi! I am totally new on here, just wanted to say Hello! Am secretly pleased that I'm not alone in the world - but on the other hans, sorry there's others with poor eyes.

I was first diagnosed with KC about 6 years ago, and have been wearing RGP lenses ever since.

I'll keep this short for now,

Cheers

Jane

Welcome Jane. It is nice to have somebody else living in Scotland on the forum.
Do you live near enough Glasgow to come to Scottish group meetings?
Are you on the National mailing list, so that you can receive newsletters etc?
We also have an Scottish e-mail list so that people in Scotland can keep in touch.E-mail addresses are kept confidential.I forward anything that people want to share with others, plus dates when Scottish group meetings happen.(Please send me you e-mail details) Elizabeth
