Hi,

Were all the pictures taken recently or are some from a year ago?

Thanks,

Eye looks good how did you find it? At what point did you decide to have a graft?

every time when someone ask me why You decide do graft.>??? me? I don't decide nothing..I am not a specialist of Keratoconus but there are doctors who spend whole life learn about this . So how could I can be "smarter: then My doctor Martin from Prague . he travel all around world to improve his knowledge and skills-- so I think he know better what is good for me.
I just told him that I agree for everything what he want to do with my eyes, I just want to see eyes of my wife clearly and live normal.
I think everyone someday cross a line when he is ready to trust someone, and when sight is so weak , when daily little thing makes a big issue, when You can read, when You ready to stop work for while , when You finally accept Your own restrictions, when You want change Your life, when You ready..In my case I wanted work long as can up to end 2012 due a have very good project to finish, and I know ed I will need money because soon as I will decide sort my eyes I will be stop working for long time..Now is a Year still had stitches and another graft in October,,,but iAM very happy person, have a fantastic wife, job and life with one good eye :) so when people don't have a health problems , when You got 2 hands 2 legs, brain and eyes nothing can stop You from make Your dreams come a thru, but If you just moan and complain about work, life, taxes, money etc but Your health is ok that means You are sucks.

Congratulations, looks good.

May I ask what your pre surgery vision was, and what your vision is today (20/20 etc.)
