Post graft stitiches

Does anyone still have their stitches in a long time after their graft? I have a 9mm very asymmetrical graft. The bottom touches the white of my eye and the top skirts my pupil. Due to the distance at the top from any blood vessels it has not really healed. 18 months post surgery and I still have 11...

Re: Corneal Graft...

Re: Hi all advice please

Can't progress after 35 ?? This drives me nuts to hear this. I was only diagnosed in my left eye at 39 and at that time my right eye was 100% fine and I was told by the Edinburgh Eye clinic it was impossible to get it in my right eye as I was so old ... 1 year later I had my right eye cross linked.

Re: X linking this week!

I was also in the later group who experienced a lot of pain. Make sure he has sun glasses handy at all times. I wore them indoors for first few days and was unable to venture out for about 4 days and even the only with glasses on. And I slept a lot too. But it is worth the pain. 5 years on and my sc...

Re: Hybrid lens care

I had a hybrid lens for years and only stopped wearing it a few months ago (nothing to do with the lens - I needed an emergency graft). I used to store them in this http://www.opti-free.com/contact-lens-solution/replenish-moisturizing-solution/ I used to just give them a gentle rub with solution. On...
