Re: Haze in the cornea after crosslinking

That's great news!

So often we read people's problems on the forum but don't always hear what happens when the eye has stabilised. Thank you for letting us know.

Re: Help about a corneal transplant.

So they said I have to either live with it or have a transplant. I am honestly in a dilemma I'm not sure what to do. Hi Bhav, A graft is a big decision (it's not one I have had to make) but there are many stories on this forum where people describe how it has given them their life back. However it ...

Re: Recent issues causing concern

Hi Paul, Recently though, maybe 3 months ago, they started to be more painful. I've also had the rgp go to the corner of the eye, this has happened twice in one week. Contact lenses shouldn't be painful. Perhaps slightly uncomfortable if one has worn them for too long but not painful. It could be th...

Re: Partner has KC - advice please

Hi Fellrunner, It does sound like your partner's KC is progressing as glasses to soft lenses to RGPs is a common progression. So referral to a hospital may be beneficial as he may like to consider cross-linking which can halt progression. There are lots of different designs for contact lenses for KC...

Re: Finally, decided to register

I would see clear although with very visible horrible ghosting, but then after 5 minutes I could barely see anything, as the lens become too cloudy/foggy so I'm unable to see with them - does anybody know why? If you have very visible horrible ghosting it may be that a different lens design might b...

Re: Hybrid lens care

Hi Mowri, There are not many people on the forum who wear hybrid lenses so you may not get an answer to your question from some one who uses them. I believe hybrid lenses were invented to replace piggyback lenses where a soft lens is worn under a hard lens for comfort. I think that there were some p...

Re: So, tried out some scleral lenses. A few questions...

I've just kept them in a spare lens container with the solution inside. I've changed this only once. Will it still be alright? Not sure if they're meant to be like RGP lenses and last for years. Moorfields have a leaflet on how to care for your scleral lenses which you might find useful to read: ht...

Re: Where can I get hybrids in London or Kent ?

I don't think 'any old soft lens' would work. Because one is wearing two lenses the lens needs to have high oxygen permeability. Also some people find +½ dioptre works better than -½ dioptre. I'm currently using Clariti 1 day, but in the past I have used Proclear 1 day and Acuvue True-Eye. The optom...

Re: Where can I get hybrids in London or Kent ?

Just to add to Anne's post I do think that it would be worth trying piggybacking. I wear piggyback lenses and have done so for about five or six years. On a bad day the wearing time of my right RGP was down to as little as an hour before I had to take it out. I had other old RGPs which I could wear ...

Re: What does haze mean

Hi Cm96, Welcome to the forum. Moorfields Eye Hospital have produced a leaflet about crosslinking which you might find helpful: http://www.moorfields.nhs.uk/sites/default/files/uploads/documents/Corneal%20cross-linking_2.pdf And have basically lost all sight in my right eye due to keratoconus, Are y...
