Re: Lasik ectasia

Sorry, John, but in the 20 years this forum has existed, I can't remember anyone describing anything like you're experiencing. And although we've had a few people posting about ectasia after Lasik for shortsightedness, I think you're the first to post about Lasik for long sight. The only thing this ...

Re: Dry eyes

Hylo Forte has double the concentration of the active ingredient (sodium hyaluronate) as Hylo Tear so would be worth a try. I'm sure people have talked about night time use dry eye medication on this forum, but I can't remember what the products were. Maybe someone else can help.

Re: Panic attacks please help me :(

Hi Tiger and welcome! Please don't panic! I'm not a medic, just someone with KC, but from everything you say, it sounds as though you have a mild form of keratoconus and given that you say things haven't changed much in the last 2 and a half years, it's very likely that it will stay stable. KC varie...

Re: First time poster confused by possible diagnosis!

Laser eye treatment for shortsightedness makes the cornea thinner. If the cornea is already a bit thinner than normal, this could make a mild case of KC worse. So laser clinics now routinely check the cornea before going ahead and do turn up some very mild cases of KC which will probably not progres...

Re: Redness after removal of Scleral Lens?

I'd be getting this checked before continuing to wear the lens. Better safe than sorry!

Re: Clinics in north wales areas

Hi and welcome.
There are eye departments with corneal specialists at the hospitals in Abergele, Bangor and Wrexham. Hopefully one of those will be near you and your GP or your previous specialist can refer you.

Re: Soft Contact Lenses?

We're all different, so lenses that work well for one person don't always suit another. So you'll just have to wait until you get your torics and see what difference they make. At least you know there are other options if they don't do the trick for you. But hopefully they will! Good luck.

Re: Soft Contact Lenses?

Hello and welcome. Yes, what you're seeing is typical of keratoconus and is down to the irregular astigmatism which is very difficult to correct with glasses. Your new toric lenses should make a difference. Let us know how you get on with them.

Re: Newly diagnosed. Hospital have booked Corneal Collagen Crosslinking

Hello Victoire and welcome, Crosslinking is a treatment that's designed to stop keratoconus progressing and because the rate of progression varies between individuals it's not usually offered on the NHS until there is evidence from corneal mapping that there has been a deterioration over a period of...
