Re: just had 8 stitches out

I guess you have got the answers you needed. :D I recently had 6 stitches out and I also had some soreness although not as bad as you. When I asked the Doctor, he said it was pretty normal. Sure enough, things have calmed down now. :D My experience was pretty good, although the Doctor was called awa...

Re: Back in Glasses - Hoorah!

Will you be able tp resume diving in the future? Yes. Dr Rameash thinks that once the all the sutures are out and things are stabilised, there should be no problem. That's why he avoided a full-thickness graft, which apparently is less suited to those of us of the aquatic persuasion! I still have a...

Re: IS THIS FOR REAL? CRAZY!

Small sample and P of less that 0.001? Andrew, I'm a bit rusty but doesn't that mean simply that the results are statistically significant (P<0.5). Ie that non-smoking and KC are correlated. I think that may be the only the thing the study has going for it :lol: When you consider that smokers are i...

Re: Back in Glasses - Hoorah!

Got the glasses on Saturday :D Its taking me a while to get used to them. My left eye has had a year off and seems to be reluctant to take the weight, also the -7 power is a bit like looking through a goldfish bowl. When I first put them on, I felt pretty sick. My brain is struggling to get both eye...

Back in Glasses - Hoorah!

Hi, I had a corneal graft nearly a year ago on my left eye as it was about 3/60 uncorrected and lenses were intolerable. The right eye has always been a bit better both for VA and tolerability of lenses. Anyhow, I have depended totally on the right eye over the last 11 months which means pushing the...

Re: What are my lens options?

As Gareth says the first thing is to get referred to a clinic which is used to dealing with KC. The first line of attack is often to prescribe rigid lenses which if you can get used to them may be the answer you seek. On the other hand, RGPs are kinda awkward and and can be uncomfortable and if you ...
