Re: Just had CXL 4 days ago, my vision is awful, will this pass?

Hey, as I understand it your vision will be much worse for a few weeks. I had both my eyes done and wasn’t back at work for three weeks. First week I could barely see anything. It sounds like your eyes are right on track and doing what they’re meant to be doing :) I believe this is the usual process...

Re: Meltdown at the Q.E. Ophthalmology Dept

Hi all, I am really sorry to hear about the mess at the QE! I think that writing to the Trust is vital....Pals is a good start but I would try and get the name of any trust heads and write directly to them. You could even tweet about it, as this sometimes has more of an impact (not being blaming, ju...

Re: Is there anyone with KC who childdren have not got it.

This is really reassuring to read! I am considering trying for children and was a bit concerned about passing it down. Also, space_cadet, I like your notion of rolling with it and just dealing with it!I feel like having KC teaches you to do that....always new challenges every year :) I'm sure little...

I have had cross linking and can currently just about manage in glasses which is helpful as my eyes are ...
