Re: Oculus Pentacam 4 Maps Refractive

Hello Taylan and welcome, It's great that you've opened a Turkish forum - every country should have one! I don't know the answer to your query, but have a look at the Greater London optometrists on this list. Quite a few of them are likely to use an Oculus Pentacam but you'll need to ring around to ...

Re: Cross Linking both eyes question

I realise you'll probably need to make your decision before then, but our next Zoom meeting is all about crosslinking. So do join us if you can.

Sight Village

The KC Group usually advertises the Sight Village events in newsletters and I know members have found them useful as a way of finding out about the latest low vision aids and the latest technology. While the physical roadshows have had to be cancelled due to Covid, this online event looks like a goo...

Re: Persecon e keratoconus

Hsal, the company you mention is a wholesale supplier of contact lenses, supplying to opticians, not to the end user. Anybody with KC knows that the fit of the lens is absolutely crucial, so buying lenses on line or by 'mail order' is a recipe for disaster as an ill fitting lens can damage the corne...

Re: Keraflex

As the hospital says, our vision does change as we get older (people who don't have KC often become more longsighted as they age). And although 40 isn't 'old' in anyone's book, it is around the time when the cornea starts ageing and becoming more rigid. Which is why crosslinking isn't offered on the...

Re: Hydrops and corneal graft

Hello and welcome, Yes, a hydrops is scary, but it doesn't inevitably lead to a corneal graft. Have a read of this article https://www.keratoconus-group.org.uk/index.php/hydrops-and-keratoconus/ written for us by one of the principal optometrists at Moorfields. And we have several people here who ha...

Re: Keraflex

Hi James, The only recent reference to Keraflex I could find when I googled is this from Australia https://www.theeyepractice.com.au/optometrist-sydney/keratoconus-how-good-are-the-latest-treatments/ As they say, there was a lot about Keraflex about 10 years ago, but since then it has gone very quie...

Trying to join the forum?

If you've been trying in vain to join our forum recently, we have a glitch that's preventing the e-mails that confirm you've joined from going out. Our webmaster is trying to fix this, but meanwhile if you contact me anne@keratoconus-group.org.uk, I should be able to activate your account.

Re: Blurry RGPs

Hi Jake, This sounds to me like the prescription is to give you best distance vision and you then can't focus on tbings nearby. Have you tried a pair of off the peg reading glasses to see if it would make a difference? Quite a few people here use reading glasses on top of their lenses for close work...
