Re: thoughts on sclerals

Hi jack,

I wore sclerals for a long time and they enabled me to start living my life. I achieved very good vision too. Good luck and if you need any advice just ask.

Best wishes
Sarah

Re: Buteyko, holding your breath and a corneal transplant

Gareth I'm so sorry I've only just seen this post! Thank you for your help and advice. I didn't commit to the exercises but have started yoga and meditation and haven't used an inhaler for months! Will hopefully continue this way.

Many thanks x

Re: Has anyone ever used Omega Eye By Scope Ophthalmics?

Hi,

Yes i have for about a year now. Started on 4 a day now on 2 and have noticed quite an improvement. I know they are pricey but in terms of quality and how they have helped me i think they are worth it. My eyes are no way near as dry, red and itchy as they were.

Good luck ☺

Buteyko, holding your breath and a corneal transplant

Hi all, I have asthma and have been looking into the Buteyko technique to help with this. The breathing exercises involve holding your breath, so I was just wondering do you think this would harm my eyes in anyway? I know you are not supposed to hold your breath post graft but does this continue thr...

Re: advice re ipad/Samsung tablets

Thank you so much for your replies! That's great you can invert the colours on the ipad and the extra zoom function, I definitely find it easier with white on a black background when my lens is out. I will check to see if the Samsung tablet does that also. I do love my samsung phone, especially the ...

Re: BBC3 Mon 1st and 8th September

He wears a scleral in one eye which makes his eye appear larger and he had a graft in his other eye. I noticed because I wear a scleral in one eye so mine is the same too :)

Good to see KC in the media to raise awareness, George's story was interesting too!
