little bit of advice please

Postby nicola jayne » Mon 14 Jan 2008 12:53 pm

Hi all
hope this find you all well, I havent been on much as i have not had a chance with work and life etc.....
anyway I had my stitches out in October and I only have a knot left there. Eye has been ok, it still gets a bit sore and i do have shooting type pains abot 5 times a day, anyone else get this ?

The consultant wanted me to get new glasses as he felt the eye had settled enough so I did. This was a month ago, since then the astig has gone from 2.50 to 4.50. and it went from 3 to 4.50 in just over a week.
any ideas anyone on why its changing again so quick ? The Dr didnt say much apart from''hmmm im quite shocked at that''
Im just afraid im gonna have to have more surgery on the eye, as long as it helps then thats fine, i just want some advice please.
please excuse the spelling & grammer, im typing quick AND on the internet in work when i shouldnt be ;)
thanks
kind regards
Nicola

Just in general; if you have a pain, or if your eye is red, or if your vision changes it is best to have it checked by an ophthalmologist.

After my first graft it took some time, and lots of different pairs of specs, before the astigmatism settled. Thankfully, now everything is fine!

All the best
