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

I work in radiotherapy as an equipment technician - Don't really find keratoconus effects anything specifically apart from maybe looking at lasers! It's a bit hard to see what the fine line is when you're seeing 5 of the same line :shock: it's a shame I don't have the opportunity to move on to being...

Re: Driving

Pretty much impossible. I drive around my local town if I absolutely have to, but would never venture on to roads unknown. Try driving with RGPs; it's like something out of Star Wars!

Re: Biochemically, how do steroid eye drops decrease corneal hazing? Possible to remove hazing?

Very sorry to hear about your situation - I am in the same one! My 'good' eye was ruined by CXL through corneal hazing and I'm afraid to say that it's now been several years and hasn't got any better. I used steroids for a while, but was never recommended continuous usage. Do you have a link relatin...

Re: Should I get a graft??

Tough one - I'm in a similar but not exactly the same situation. Ultimately, I have chosen not to risk a transplant in my bad eye - As I can 'get by' without needing one. Sounds like something I don't really want to have to go through unless absolutely necessary.

Re: Crosslinking on good eye.

It certainly is a tough call. I'd never want to advise someone not to do it, then watch their vision deteriorate... keeping a close eye (excuse the pun) on your progression is definitely the key. I only asked your age because when asking for advice, something said to me was if I was under 30 - Go fo...

Re: Contact lenses advice please

I've just replied to someone else asking them if they've tried regular astigmatism soft lenses... why opticians are so eager to push RGPs as a first port of call I do not know. Were you told if your KC is mild/moderate/severe? If mild/moderate definitely try softs first - I use Bausch+Lomb PureVisi...

Re: Ghosting worsening but topography unchanged

Have you tried regular astigmatism soft lenses? For some reason my eye unit put me on RGPs first... hated them, but I get 95% as good vision with softs, which is definitely worth it as they're 100% more comfortable! I wear mine up to 10 hours a day without a problem, as long as I use eye drops for l...

Re: II love yet hate disability

Glad to see positivity from someone who's certainly had a rough old time of things. Makes me even more annoyed at the constant negativity I hear (mainly at work) from people without any real problems... they just like to moan for the sake of it.
