Hello Hannah How long have you had your scleral lenses and how do you find them? I got mine back in May 2003 and after some initial teething problems with insertion and air bubbles things went well apart from the fact that my eyes were rather dry and somewhat sensitive and sometimes I seemed to get ...

Sophie I was prescribed Minims artificial tears to help with comfort and dryness. There are other products for comfort wearing contact lenses on the market however at the hospital I attend they were not too keen as many of them have lots of different preservatives in and I suppose also in some ways ...

Alice Yes is the honest answer to your question, well from my point anyway and if I was a gambler I would probably put money on it that others feel the same way. I know you said you were wary of showing your husband the site and I am not sure if this is because you think he would feel you had acted ...

Hello Aaron Just thought I would add my little bit. I was diagnosed at 32 after 2 years of uncertainty between several opticians, so I suppose in reality at 30 KC could probably have been identified had I seen the right people. For the first 2 years (up to May 2002) I managed fine just with glasses,...

Alice Has your husband looked at this site? Is he aware of it? Maybe he would find it would be of some use to him and somewhere to say how he is feeling. I know I certainly don't always tell everyone how I am feeling whether it be my husband a member of the family or a friend. I sometimes think that...

Paul welcome to the forum, which I am sure is probably one of the things that keeps me sane. It does seem to be a very little known about condition and I am not sure anout 'ignorance being bliss' but it does seem to be that some people can be very ignorant about anyone with a disability or problem e...

Well, me too. On Sunday 31st Oct I went to bed as usual thinking my right eye felt a little gritty and put it down to the fact I had been to the cinema and worn my scleral lens so I could see, something I had not done that often just lately as the lens is in the process of being refitted. On Mon am ...

Hello Dry eyes do seem to be a problem for quite a few people. Have you tried 'Minims Artificial Tears'? They can be used at any time, with or without lenses an come in hany little single vials. I THINK they are preservative free and don't seem to contain anything too nasty. I think they may be a li...

Hello Drew You seem to be having a rough ride at the moment and yes it does seem in certain areas getting lenses take ages. As a bit of positive news for you I too was found to be very RGP corneal lens intollerant and after approx 9 months of various lenses being tried I was fitted for sclerals. Aft...
