Re: Still no lenses :(

Hi Alec, Sorry to hear about your problems. It can take a while to get suitable lenses, even when you have seen a consultant so don't worry too much. The local hospital I attend also does not have a lens fitting department and I go to one of the local opticians for lens fitting. I would assume that ...

Re: CXL

Thanks for your reply Lynn (and evryone else). I think I might wait until my next appoint at hospital which is in Feb and get fitted with the piggy back lenses meantime - although I manage fine with my glasses at the moment so don't think myself the lenses are necessary yet. To be honest, I wouldn;t...

CXL

Hi folks, A wee question that maybe Lynn could answer?? I had asked my consultant about CXL. After having a look at my previous eye tests he has now told me that he wouldn't consider it necessary at the moment as my condition has stayed relatively stable since jan 2011. He had also said that as soon...

Re: RGP QUESTIONS

Hi dalbeath, Any info you can give me re CXL would be great. I would like to know how it went, recovery time, how long you were off work etc. Also, if you don't mind, how much it costs? I know it is around £1100 per eye but not sure of the actual cost. How was the procedure? If you would prefer to P...

Re: RGP QUESTIONS

Hi dalbeath, my consultant is Dr Sriinivassan also. I have only been to the hospital twice since being diagnosed but I have felt he has been a bit dismissive. Hopefully - it's only because he doesn't have anything further to tell me yet - wants to look at all my prev eye tests before he goes into an...

Re: RGP QUESTIONS

Thanks for your reply Derek, I have only been trying the lenses since June but the optom had told me it can take from 6mths to a year to adjust to them so assumed this is normal?? I live in Ayrshire, Scotland and my local eye clinic is based at Ayr Hospital which isn't far. However, they do not deal...

RGP QUESTIONS

Hi everyone, I have been trying to get used to RGP lenses for about 6 weeks now and am struggling a bit. I attended the eye clinic at the hospital in May 2011 and was diagnosed with KC in both eyes and advised to try RGP lenses. I was then referred back to my optom (specsavers) for fitting. The diff...
