Hello all,

To give you an update on the situation. As uv cross linking is the only option at the moment to stabilize keratoconus I went to Brussels Eye Doctors. Uv cross linking is still not carried out in The Netherlands :evil: My left eye was treated last thursday in Brussels and is still recovering right now. In the first place the epithelium should have recovered last monday, after 4 days (under the special contact lens), but that was not the case unfortunately. My sight is still dramatic, so tomorrow is exactly one week and I will go back to the hospital again to have the epithelium investigated.
I pray the epithelium has recovered tomorrow or friday!
Do other people have experiences on the recovery time of the epithelium after uv crosslinking or in general? And after the epithelium recovery what is the prognose on the vision, is it really 3 weeks to get your full vision back, at least that's what the doctor said in Brussels....

Regards,

Ronald

Having spoken to one person regrading cross linking they had, it was reported the vision did not stabilise until 3 months post treatment.

Browsing the forum it would appear the recovery times vary greatly as is the case for any surgical treatment of KC so a very individual thing.
