My Cross Linking Experience after Intacs

Hello Everyone. It has been a while since my last post which followed my Intacs surgery in December 2008 in Dubai. Well since then I have moved back to UK (why? I hear you ask!!!) and was transferred from Moorfields Dubai by the lovely Dr Borsario to Moorfields UK (private) to the equally lovely Jul...

Re: Recent Intac Surgery

Hi, I had Intac surgery and experienced all the blurring/double vision etc. Hard to say how long it took - it was very gradual. I would say after 1 month it was alot better, and by 3 months much much better. Hope this helps!

Re: Make up & KC

I have been using a great eye make up remover for a number of years - it is like water and will not sting the eyes at all. It is made by Bioderma, and is from their sensitive range - Sensibio H2O - and according to their website "guarantees excellent cutaneous and ocular tolerance (tested under...

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Yeh the person I know had quite a painful experience there and when he went to see another doctor (as the problem was not fixed). They said it should not have been as painful as it was and he had it done again and it was fine. I just went straight to Moorfields (rightly or wrongly) as like I say I d...

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Thanks Graeme, you are right. I think I need to probe my doctor a bit more as to why he thinks this is suitable

Thanks again

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Hi Dubaigal, My doctor is Spanish he has about 10 qualifications after his name! I think they have a pretty good website he may be on there. I would definitely go and see him. A friend of mine had an eye problem and went to somewhere in the Fairmont offices and it was awful! I rarely have confidence...

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Oh and also I was doing some research into the actual post-op effects last night. Sounds horrific! One woman said she wanted to take her eyes out it hurt that much. I am not sure I am prepared for that, especially if the success is not guaranteed......

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Hi Ce2 I am a KC professional... in that I fit contact lenses to patients with KC, Post CXL, Post INTACS....and post lasek ectasia (KC) I am afraid the latter is a real issue, though you won't hear about in mainstream surgery information. As in, there are people who, even though they have completel...

Re: Lasek after Intacs?

Thanks to you both for your messages. I have tried all sorts of contact lenses - the problem is that they seem to rotate on my eye as the cornea is so 'steep' and to be honest the whole experience was so traumatic and painful that I can't face trying it again at the moment. It is interesting that th...

Lasek after Intacs?

Hi, this is my first topic post although I have been checking out this site and all your great advice for the last few months. I was diagnosed with KC here in Dubai 4 months ago and went ahead with intacs surgery 1 month later. I just had my 3 month checkup and the Dr is pleased with things and with...
