Re: Re-graft pain

I'm very releived to report that the pain has eased up significantly, I can sneeze without feeling like there's a screwdriver in my socket. This is of some relief because it really scared me because I had no expectation of it. I do think though it's not right to discharge a patient in that much pain...

Re: Photosensitivity suggestions

Thank you kindly David, I came across by accident exactly what you're referring to in Boots! Over-glasses, they are obviously bigger but I don't care, if it works it works. They do as you say box all around the eyes, the nearest to wearing swimming googles. Thank you gsward, I wasn't aware of that, ...

Re: Photosensitivity suggestions

I've found an alternative to wearing a hat when the sensitivity is so bad that even with polarised dark glasses I'm putting my hand over the top. There are 'over glasses' which have a bit over the top to stop light getting in and filled in at the sides. They're designed for wearing over prescription...

Re: Re-graft pain

I think this the problem. It's causing me difficulties with the other eye with lens insertion because when one eye is in pain and not wanting to open as wide and is very reactive to anything it impacts on the other eye. Hence the lens endlessly going into the corner because I can't control my reflex...

Brilliant app for phones

Found a brilliant app whether you're registered blind/severely visually impaired or are functionally blind/SVI without your lenses, this app on an android phone (& there's a version for iPhone users) is simple and easy to use. Download for free from Google play store and press the desk top icon....

Questions for optometrists

Hi, a few questions for optometrists reading here; 1). Do KC pts make more eye mucus than non KC pts? I find I have to spend a lot of time pulling out mucus before RGP insertion or it smears it or hurts. Running a tissue over it can be too rough I find a cotton handkerchief is better.

Photosensitivity suggestions

I'm seeking suggestions.
My photosensitivity is high at the moment so even with the darkest wrap around polarised sunglasses I need to put my hand over the top of my glasses to block the light
