Eye drops

Occasionally my eyes can get really dry whilst wearing my RGP lenses, and I was just wondering what eye drops everybody would recommend to counter this problem? At the moment, I am just using Optrex Rehydrating drops (with the lenses still in) but they aren't really doing the job. Is there a drop th...

Re: so deprerssed

Re: so deprerssed

If i did mention KC early on it was usualy after a really cheesy chat up line "Do you want to see my operation scar?" and if they said yes, I would say "Look deep in to my eyes!" at which point they were close enough to grab a cheeky kiss :oops: I've not even had a graft, but I'...

Re: so deprerssed

Since being diagnosed, I just tell people that I wear rigid contact lenses? Outside of my family & close friends (and others who I NEEDED to inform), nobody even knows about it... and they never will unless I make a point of bringing it up. Even when I do tell people, they are more intrigued tha...

Re: pain and sensitivity to light

I had my RGP lenses fitted by Cindy Tromans at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital (privately) about 2 years ago, and since then (disregarding the "wear in" period) I have had no real problems with them. The only issues I've ever had is when the KC has progressed in my bad left eye which resulte...

Re: Kerasoft Lens

Hi Kieran, I was just wondering how tolerant you are to your current RGP lenses? Are you able to wear them for a long period of time or do you need a break from them every so often? I also wear RGP lenses and I asked about the Kerasoft lenses during my recent appointment at Manchester Royal Eye Hosp...

Re: Contact lens Case Cleaning

Think I'm gonna have to find me one of these "John Lewis self-washing hand towels" :wink:

On a serious note, after reading these, I do think I need to up my game a bit.
Think I will start being a bit more cautious when it comes to cleaning the ol' contact case.

Re: Contact lens Case Cleaning

Hi Jay, Sounds like a very precise & effective routine! I have to admit, I don't go to nearly as much trouble with my lens case - maybe I should?! I've been wearing my lenses now for well over a year, and I've never had any issues with eye infections etc. I just give my lenses a good cleaning ev...
