Re: Crosslinking on a healthy eye

i managed to read the logo of the TV - eurosport and some of the words that were on the TV, so really no idea how my keratoconus is. Can you do that Lia? Unaided, unless I was only a few inches away from the television, I wouldn’t even be able to tell it was a football game. With my glasses on I co...

Re: Crosslinking on a healthy eye

Hi Simeon, But i am 23, and i wonder should i do the procedure on the healthy eye too, so as to prevent it from happening in the future. The doctor said that i should go to monitor the situation every 6 months, From what I've read, and the presentations I've been to, this seems to be fairly standard...

Re: Keratoconus waiting times on NHS

Hello Bubbles, Welcome to the forum. From what you say it does sound as if your keratoconus has developed quite rapidly. If you were referred to the eye hospital three months ago and still have another three months to go that does sound excessive. The guidelines for NHS waiting times are 18 weeks fo...

Re: NHS experience

Hi Fabianaf, It's not unusual to find contact lenses fitting a frustrating process especially when an old favourite lens has to be replaced. New lenses can feel different from old ones; especially when we start thinking about it! With a new lens you may need to build up wearing time, even though you...

Re: Spare lenses - are they are luxury or a necessity?

I must admit I don't think to clean the spares, just keep them in the manufacturers vial. I don't carry them with me either, just leave them at home. I don't clean them or carry them with me. The reason I clean my lenses regularly so as to keep them in a "ready to wear" state. Typically o...

Re: New older diagnosis

Hello Tia, Welcome to the forum. You are correct in thinking that it is unusual to develop keratoconus at your age. It typically first occurs in teens or early twenties but there are cases where people have discovered keratoconus much later. Usually these are milder cases. When people are first diag...

Spare lenses - are they are luxury or a necessity?

I've just read the latest newsletter and reading about the AGM made me think - are spare lenses a necessity or a luxury? I've worn contact lenses for a long time and it was when I was at university I realised that, as I could no longer see with my glasses, I would be totally lost without my lenses s...

Re: Ghosting - does it ever get better?

I have found thought that wearing glasses gives me less ghosting at night, maybe that's the best option for me? From everything I have read it seems as though RGP lenses should always give me the best vision, is it at all possible that glasses could instead? I don't know why your glasses are giving...
