Oh my - I thought I was the only one who took hours to put lenses in. I wish I'd had access to a resource like this place back then, but we are talking about twenty years ago (gawd, that makes me feel old :roll: ). Judith, all I can say is that your fears are totally understandable. Knowledge is pow...

That's good to hear Gareth. What happened to you? I've been looking through posts here but there's a lot to take in at once. I should have added to my post last night that I am still very aware of the graft with the stitches still in situ. It gets sore and it waters a fair bit. I've always put it do...

Hi Per :D I'm very lucky and have excellent vision with both grafts. There isn't much to choose but if anything the one with individual stitches is very slightly better, and the one that had the continuous stitch is the most sensitive to light. I wear glasses. I've never worn lenses since the grafts...

Hi Andrew It's good to meet you too. :D Good luck with your graft. Having been through it once how are you feeling about doing it again? There were four years between my grafts because I had so much pain with the first I couldn't face having the second one done. Not a good thing to say to someone ab...

My '92 graft had a continuous stitch which was removed after eighteen months or so but my '96 graft had individual stitches, most of which are still in situ. I went through a phase a few years back when they gave me a lot of trouble and I was constantly going back to have one taken out but (touch wo...

Hi Anne I can really relate to how you're feeling about going into school. My sight was at its worst when my girls were small and I used to find the new situations that you are constantly confronted with when they are that age all but overwhelming. You've definitely done the right thing by going in ...

Thanks for the warm welcome. :D Hi John I would be very interested to hear what's said at the presentation. That day is my youngest's birthday so I don't think she'd be too happy if I disappeared for the day (although having said that as she'll be turning 14 perhaps she might be only too pleased :D ...

Introducing myself

Hi everyone :D Heavens, where to start? :roll: I'm now 43 and was initially diagnosed when I was 19. After many miserable years struggling with contact lenses I had my first transplant in 1992 and my second in 1996. I know, all things considered, my sight now is amazingly good but I do struggle with...
