Andrew, your reply made me laugh. Not laugh at you but the realisation that you make so much sense! I've been so concerned with just trying to get a contact lens to fit comfortably and give me my 20/20 vision vision back that I forgot that I'm getting a little older (32 now oooft!

Re: RGP QUESTIONS

Kirst, I'm from Ayr and some of the things you said in your post above rang true with me too. Been trying to get used to RGP lenses for 5 weeks now and not doing too well. I've also found the Optometrist not particularly helpful with the condition and trying to support me, giving me the impression t...

This was further to my hospital visit 6 weeks ago where they were almost certain I had Keratonconus in my right eye.

Re: First eye clinic appointment
