Eye sight worse.

Postby cherishu2 » Thu 09 Sep 2010 5:01 pm

Hi, went for an eye test today. Last one was 6 months ago.
The opt said the prescription has changed and shows significant change in vision. I asked worse or better lol and he said ''worse''
Obviously i have actually noticed in daily life anyway. Reading is harder etc.
Thing is im really scared now. Is my eye going downhill?
My cornea transplant was 3 yrs ago.
I dont have sight in the right eye and they said its too advance to operate on. Cos the chance of rejection is too high on it.
So if my left eye gets worse and worse ill be back to blind.
mum to 7. Its a long story lol. cornea graft oct 19 2007.
Son with KC too
registerd blind 17th May 2007

So sorry that you've taken a step backwards again. But last time you posted, you were trying a contact lens for the grafted eye. What happened about that? If you're managing to wear a lens now, is it not possible to increase the prescription on that to improve your vision? Most of us who've had grafts do still need contact lenses to see well, and certainly the prescription on mine has changed over the years (and not for the better!) I do hope there will be an answer for you.
All the best
Anne
