It just occurred to me that I seem to be leading this one away from the original topic.  If you would like to post your experiences (and I'm quite interested in hearing them), maybe you could start a new thread (under KC Experiences, maybe)?

Thanks, and sorry about the hi-jack.

Hey, another Canadian who's found out about X-linking!

I'm interested in what sort of support you've received from the Canadian medical system (it no longer gets good reviews from me).

You was not going off topic repeatedly Gray. If you can imagine going to a topic as a newbie and reading half way through it a load of "chat" about nothing to do with the subject in hand... that would not only time waisting for others to read and write but also and mind-numblingly boaring, when a new topic is all that was required.

Let me also add that the US one Dr method has not a lot (if any) of peer preveiwed data (may be a few artiles from one or two Dr's). Also there has been no animal testing done or is FDA approved (if its wortyhy to be called corneal crosslinking is doubtful in that method at best). There is a good reason for removing the epithelium which has been shown to work from the first days with animal testing. Its suprising no-one know what is happening over there!

Hello,

The doctor in California United States is Dr Brian S.Boxer and he charges $2800 U.S dollars per eye. In his procedure he does not remove the epithelium. This doctor has been performing it for 3.5 years.

Regards,

Chris

Hello,

With regards to support here in Toronto the largest city in Canada none of the optometrist that I went to heard of the crosslinking procedure. All that they can offer a Keratoconus patient is rigid contact lenses, something to correct the vision but not stop the disease from spreading. I don't want to sit here and wait for my vision to systematically get worse. Therefore I want to go to Germany and stop my disease from spreading. What I need from you fellow colleagues is advise on how to contact Dr Markus Kohlaas or his secretary to arrange my treatment? Do you know what the waiting time is for this procedure? Furthermore if I contact the Doctor in Dortmund do they communicate with you in English? I want to get this done as soon as possible please Help!!!!

One last question the clinic in Dortmund is their procedure CE approved ?

Your help is greatly appreciated and I thank you all in advance.

Best Regards,

Chris

Hi Cbis,

The link for the contact details is below, it is on this topic further up it as well:

http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=48159&p=3&topicID=6796848

It is CE Approved and they speak fluent English, but I have no idea of the waiting times.

Thanks for your straight forwardness and clear posts, it does save time in respoding when people do that, I hope you every well wishes a KCer can to another.

Hello, and thank you for your prompt response.  I will contact the hospital tomorrow and send in my original orbscan (eye topography) for the Doctor to review. I will keep you updated on what will happen next.

Best Regards,

Chris
