I'm horribly lazy about using eyedrops but Liquifilm Tears are good when I bother. Having friends who are aware of your condition and who shout at you if you so much as touch your eyes works a treat too!

Congratulations. My eyes seem to be getting more tolerant to bright light although I think my new glasses have a ...

Good luck Piper.

I couldn't bear the thought of trying lenses because of the constant itching in my eyes but I've been lucky enough to have great vision with glasses instead.

Gareth, I couldn't agree more. My ex husband used to come to all of my appointments and it was a great help having 2 sets of ears take in the information.

I also found it useful to take a list of questions with me as it's all to easy to forget when you actually get in there.

I was getting all enthusiastic as I read down until I got to the date. I'll be at my niece's christening, otherwise I'd have been very interested to attend. I shall try to make it to the next one tho.

I have prescription sunglasses. They're nowhere near as lovely as the Oakleys I reluctantly donated to my mum but at least I can see to drive when it's sunny now.

I found it an incredibly lonely journey because I was too useless to find this site earlier so you've already made a better start to coping with the whole experience ...

Hi from a new girl

Hi all. I feel like I'm joining this a bit late as I've had all the treatment I'm going to get for my eyes. I also feel rather stupid for not thinking of looking for a site like this when I was diagnosed and when I was at my lowest because of my eye condition. So, maybe now I have found this site I ...
