Re: DIZZINESS/DISORIENTATION

That's encouraging. I think one of the best tips for KC is recognising that you need to manage it from day to day. If something is not as good as it was try and work out what might be different. Things may change in the long term and you will probably begin to recognise that too. You might find an a...

Re: has KC ever cost any of you your job

Hi, I can remember struggling with hard (RGP) lens. Scratchiness and a tendency to fall out is a common sign of keratoconus. It happened to me once in the middle of a presentation I was giving but fortunately, I caught it and carried on. My boss said to me afterwards "did something happen when ...

Re: DIZZINESS/DISORIENTATION

I think I would try and rule out the work/IT related factors first and if things don't improve discuss with your optometrists after you have given your new lenses a few weeks to settle in.

Let us know how this go.

Re: DIZZINESS/DISORIENTATION

My guess is your occupation and pattern of work is contributing to your dizziness. When you are not working are you completely away from the computer screen (and phone)? You suggest it is then significantly better. If your eyes without your RGP lenses are not 'balanced' it too could contribute to th...

Re: Corneal transplant on Tuesday

Hi, that's unfortunate, if you are still concerned or it appears to be getting worse I would walk into A&E at BMEC.

Re: KC on one eye

Hi, That was good advice from the consultant you saw. The principle is always "do no harm" and ideally don't do anything that reduces your options later. It is probably true that most of us have KC in both eyes, but it is not uncommon for it to only be noticeable in one eye. What is certai...

If you are concerned BMEC do have an urgent care helpline 0121 507 4440. If you are in any doubt give them a call.

Re: Corneal transplant on Tuesday

When are you due to be seen again? Does the clinic/hospital have a number for you to call for advice?

Re: Eye drops?

Hi, welcome to the forum. Really it would not be a good idea for us to recommend eyedrops for you. If you have KC and are suffering from allergies, which is very common as the two often occur together, you should be talking to your consultant / doctor about medication. Where are you being seen? Hosp...
