My epi-on CXL & CK

Postby Wizard » Tue 27 Jan 2015 12:07 pm

I was interested to read about other people's experience when I was considering cxl and there wasnt enough written by the patients. I had cxl done in November and am keen to share my experience in the hope that it may be of help to anyone considering this procedure in future.
I'm about a week away from 3 months since CK and epi-on CXL.
My BCV has changed from 6/9 to 6/7.5 in the right eye, and 6/12 to 6/10 in the left eye.
The SPH, Cyl, Axis was 7.25 -1.75 30 and is now -8 in the Right eye .
In the Left was -7 -5 130 and is now -12 -2.5 150.

I can't really say whether there's been a major improvement but I feel like every where I look things look clearer and lights at night don't look like huge spread out circles overlapping one another. I can see each street light by itself with a distance between them.

In a way I feel I let myself down by agreeing to have CK done . I regretted every time I go to the opticians and am told the SPH has worsened ( every 4 weeks ).
