Sweet and John, Thank you for your comments. At the moment I’m quite happy with Moorfields. I did try a local specialist but it was a disaster; my eyes were beyond his resources. I think that as are our eyesight problems are uncommon it is unlikely that an independent optician can have the reso...

Sweet,

In an ideal world I’d love to see a local optom rather then trekking up to Moorfields. But unfortunately most optoms do not have the experience to fit us. When I first discovered that my eye sight was a “challengeâ€Â

Hospitals or High Street

Lynn, If I could be seen on the High Street it would save me time treking up to London and seeing a different person each time. I used to be seen on the high street by an independent optician who spent ages with me sorting out the perfect pair of lenses. I was on of his challenges! However I always ...

Hi Horses, Now you've decided to get yourself some new lenses you need to find someone to fit your eyes. This can be easier said than done! If you can find a high street optician who has experience is KC and is able to fit you it will be a lot more convenient than waiting for hospital appointments. ...

Lynn, Looking back I think there could be two things that could be due to KC rather than shortsightedness that I originally had. Firstly as my eyes got worse the images used to separate rather than become softly focussed. This was only noticeable when reading the blackboard when the writing appeared...

A few years ago people used to say to me that they didn't realise that my eyes were different colours. They aren't - they're both brown - but my eyes had different types of lenses and one only came in a blue tint and the other in grey one.

Hi Gareth,

The method is slightly different for the other eye. It's really a case of resting part of the hand on the face and then being able to use the index finger as an easily controlled lever to pop the lens in.

The one handed method I use is to rest the nail side of my thumb against my cheek and then with the lens sitting on the end of my index finger slowly move the finger towards the eye and pop the lens in. I don't hold my eyelids open with my fingers but just stare straight ahead. I hope you feel bette...

Thank you for all your positive comments about my KC. Here's a little more: Experts. I've seen many different optoms at Moorfields. I usually go every six months and I can think of seven or eight individuals who have seen me in the last few years. And I still don't get perfect sight out of my right ...

Lynn, Thanks for your reply. When my eyesight became a challenge in 1990 the optician who first fitted me used to keep sending lenses back to the lab to be adjusted - and he commented that if only the lab was next door it would have been so much easier. Whereas the optician in 1996 was using fitting...
