Re: Covid-19 and corneal transplants

Just to add that letters to the 'vulnerable' seem to have been triggered in some cases by just the word 'transplant' in medical records - the NHS obviously wanted to make sure they didn't leave anyone out even if that meant some people would get a letter when it didn't apply to them. So to re-iterat...

Covid-19 and corneal transplants

We have received the following letter from NHS Blood and Transplant which I hope will reassure those who have had a transplant and have no other underlying condition. The e-mail accompanying the letter gave the following summary - "Fit, healthy recipients who are not immune suppressed are not i...

Re: Coronavirus and hosp appts

If I'm remembering correctly, your graft was around a year ago. Most sutures don't finally come out until 18mths (though sometimes a few are selectively taken out earlier) so I don't think you need to worry at this stage. Of course, if sutures are causing pain or other major problems, that would be ...

Re: Coronavirus and hosp appts

The latest Twitter message from Moorfields says they are beginning to re-schedule non- urgent appointments, but of course A&E will remain open for emergencies. And it is a 'new' cough that's a possible indication of C-19. Though how you tell if a new cough is innocent or not is another matter. T...

Re: New procedure for Keratoconus UK 2020

Hi and welcome! Remember that the people who post here are the ones whose KC does progress! The ones whose KC stays the same go away and forget they have an unusual condition. As you probably know, to be eligible for CXL on the NHS there has to be definite progression over a 6mth period. Have a look...

Re: Inserting sclerals

Hi Carmel,
I'm moving this post to the general discussion forum where I hope more people will see it. And you'll see you're not alone in asking questions about sclerals.
Good luck,
Anne

Re: Corneal transplant

Hi Cheryl and welcome, I'm someone who had transplants in both eyes (2 years apart) in my 30s and they certainly gave me my life back and enabled me to carry on working full time until I retired. It is a big decision, though in my case my vision was so bad even wearing my contact lenses that I reall...
