Re: Piggyback user problems.

Hi, I have been piggy backing using a RGP and a plain 'NIght and day' lens for almost 8 years now in my right eye and find it fantastic! I can't tolerate my RGP lens on it's own. I use 'Blink' contact lens drops throughout the day if my eyes are getting dry and I use Systane eye drops twice a day be...

Re: Feeling a little blue...

Hi Jennie, I felt exactly the same as you and it is such a rubbish place to be, I'm so sorry for you. I was working in 'A&E' with 12 hour shifts and my only good eye with RGP's had an ulcer and so I had to stop wearing my lenses. I have never had much vision with my other eye so decided to try a...

Re: A potential crazy question

Hi there, No it isn't a silly question and one which I can't overly answer. The Chloramphenicol being an antibiotic should be ok if it wasn't touching any of the milk. I know you said it wasn't in it's packet but I'm guessing it wasn't very near the milk? You are asking if you could have caused an i...

Re: new to forum

Sam, Sounds very confusing, I bet all you want is a definite diagnosis so that you know what you are dealing with? I have just looked up PMD and have found that both this and Keratoconus (KC) cause the cornea to thin, just in different places. Sorry to hear that you have allergies so contact lenses ...

Re: RGP lenses, irritation and weeping eye!

Sorry to hear you are having problems with RGP's, they are brilliant when they work but can but such a pain when they don't! Yes as others have said here, I would go back and check with your lens professional to make sure that everything is ok with your lenses. Sadly you can wear lenses for years an...

Re: Solutions

Hi! I love Boston but will pick up any wetting solution if I run out and don't have a problem. My eyes do get very dry as well so I use Systane morning and night, 10 mins before I put lenses in. I clean my RGP with Boston cleaner and rinse it with saline before I soak in in wetting and disinfection ...

Re: contact question

Lynn I thought the same thing about pushing the lens across the eye :o I've had way too much abrasions and ulcers which is annoying with having to leave the lens out. I just put my lens directly onto the cornea and it sits nicely. I have never used a mirror to place the lens, you do get used to it w...
