Re: To all who have joined this forum recently

I am having a strange problem in that they are fine for a couple of minutes and then cloud over making my vision really cloudy. Hi Maggie, I had a similar problem with one of my lenses clouding over after an hour or so's wear. In my case the problem was not deposits but bubbles forming under the le...

Re: To all who have joined this forum recently

Tried glasses and contacts to correct left eye but to no avail. Consultant doesn't believe left eye bad enough for corneal transplant but can't see anything clearly with it without any kind or correction. Hi Matthew, There are lots of different types of contact lenses for keratoconus these days but...

Re: Lenses

Hi DCSales, There are lots of different types of contact lenses for keratoconus. Toric lenses are designed for regular astigmatism, some of these lenses are soft but they can also be RGPs. Mild keratoconus can often be corrected with glasses or ordinary contact lenses. As keratoconus progresses peop...

Re: Contact lens help and advice

Hi Hahny, Yes, people with mild KC are often able to get good vision with ordinary soft contact lenses. RGPs can be comfortable so do give them a try if the optician thinks that they would give you better vision with them than soft ones. I've worn RGPs for nearly 30 years (although these days I pigg...

Re: Got Keratoconus, What field do you work in??

Hi Sk_89k, Like many people my job involves spending far too long looking at a computer screen. I note that your profile states that you correct your vision with spectacles. You may find that you would get better vision with contact lenses. I get a theoretical 6/9 vision in my better eye with glasse...

Re: New scleral RGPs and they scare me!!

As I understand it adjusting the power should be straightforward, whereas adjusting the fit can be more complicated.

I hope that all goes well for your appointment on Tuesday.

Re: New scleral RGPs and they scare me!!

Hi Carmel, Welcome to the forum. As your reading vision is excellent it sounds to me as if the power of the lenses is incorrect. Normally it is distance vision that is optimised and reading glasses used for near vision, if required. I would suggest that you ask for an appointment to check your visio...

Re: Financial Help

Just to add to Anne’s comprehensive reply. If your lenses are replaced every six months because they only have design life of six months then you will be charged every six months for replacements. But if your lenses were designed to be replaced more frequently than every six months then you would be...

Re: Contact Lens wearing time

If I wear my lens for a number of hours and then have a break for say an hour do you think it is reasonable to extend this time. ” This is a difficult one. Eight hours isn't very long and I guess that there would be days when you would like to extend the time. I think in your case I might be tempte...
