Re: Photosensitivity suggestions

Your post reminded me of a lady who visited the KC desk at Sight Village. She wore a pair of brown over glasses that completely boxed in her prescription glasses. I tried them on and they completely covered the top and sides. I thought she said that she got them from Moorfields but I can't find them...

Re: Grafts - good experiences?

I hesitate to sound complacent but I feel you need a good experience to balance out the comments. I had a graft on my left eye in 1986 and it is difficult to remember the specifics. What I can remember is that I was back working within a week or so and there was an immediate relief in only wearing o...

Re: Crosslinking on a healthy eye

If you look at our committee (https://www.keratoconus-group.org.uk/index.php/committee/) each member has experienced one or more of the problems you fear, yet all have had successful careers despite the difficulties.

Re: 3D printed human corneas are a reality!

Interesting, my first graft had continuous stitches that were removed in one go and that is the best one. My second had individual stitches that were removed two at a time and that has left an astigmatism of 7 which is managable.

Good luck.

Re: 3D printed human corneas are a reality!

Thank you Rob, I have attributed the post to you. We have only recently updated our website and can now post news instantly, so its good that members like you alert us to this kind of development. On the subject of grafts, I'm afraid I am biased but they have been the best thing that has happened to...
