helen's crosslinking experience
Permalink   
 


Had my follow up. Central cornea still swollen BUT I can read 3 more lines on the chart , even with my bad eye. Had 6/36 and 6/24 vision before and it's now 6/12 and 6/9!!! In my worse eye I had +8.00 astigmatism before and it's now only +0.75 - unbelievable!! Mr Jory was very cautious and told me not to get too excited as it may change over the next few weeks.

Fantasicoooo well done!smile

They allow people to drive with just one eye which is correcrted to 6/12, so it puts it in to perspective the positive news from your follow up.

Your consultant is prefectly correct, a chart taking all the reading's for all the patients would be an average showing improvements with this treatment over time, and with the cornea moving the right way, for some patients, although individual patient readings can fluctuate in the intial stages but with everything returning back on course as intended.

Also 6/9 uncorrected is pretty good vision in its own right for how much vision can be seen, that some people don't notice their vision is not close to 6/6 until getting tested, and there is more time to go in the recovery, i'm quitely confident for you Helen that you will still be a fashion designer and even have your own label smile

Hi Jaspal Yeah the blurring can be a bit frightening. I've been told by the dr and also others who have had it done that blurring is normal up to 6 weeks after procedure. The central part of my first eye treated is still swollen and it's four weeks since I had that done. I'm also finding my vision is different on a day to day basis- again I'm sure this is all quite normal but agree it does seem a bit scary. When you think about what was actually done to the front of your eye it's not surprising there is swelling. Don't panic Helen

Hi Jaspal,

Don't worry your head about the blurring. I had crosslinking 4 weeks ago. My vision is still blurry. Went for check up on Friday. All is fine except that the eye is dried out a little. Have to put in more lubricating drops and in 2-3 weeks all should be cleared up.
