Thank you. I ended up doing both which personally I think was a good option as the burning sensation first day was not something I want to look forward to for the other eye.

Pentacam scans pre and post (7 weeks after CXL) attached here for anyone interested

Vision pretty much back to pre-CXL now - very slight cloudiness when looking at illuminate screens with white background but has improved in the last 2 weeks

That is sounding great! Very glad to hear it went well and seems you made a good choice getting them both at the same time. Fingers and toes crossed the recovery continues as well as it’s going :)
