Re: artificial cornea transplant

Before everyone gets too excited, this is 'the wrong type of transplant' for most people with KC! It's replacing the back layer of the cornea, the endothelium, which is what fails in another corneal condition, Fuchs Dystrophy, or can fail after a conventional graft. https://www.theguardian.com/socie...

Re: Heated eye mask?

Hi Cameron, There's an interesting article about dry eye in the Autumn 2020 newsletter https://www.keratoconus-group.org.uk/index.php/newsletters/ Towards the end of that, Sara does mention warm eyelid therapy, though I don't know if she's referring to heated masks or warm flannels which some people...

Re: CXL one eye or both?

CXL came too late for me, so I can only speak from talking to lots of KC people and reading lots of people's experiences on this forum in the past. My personal view of one eye or both ...
