Re: RGP and Soft no good - any recommendations?

Wildeye wrote:You could try mini sclerals. These rest on the limbal region just past the cornea and being bigger than a normal RGP you don’t get the eye lid sensation as these ride over the Lens. Being RPG you get all the benefits like high DK index, easy cleaning and handling.


Does NHS offer mini scaler lens?

I've tried many contact lenses, RGP lens gives me perfect vision but I can't even open my eye after an hour. I was told to get this treatment for better vision but they also said that I'll ...

I'm quite nervous about it. If you have any ...

It was so difficult to get an appointment in Moorfield. I went to GP and explained my problem and KC. They referred to me to Specsavers :shock...
