How many days of haze????
Permalink   
 


Hi all,

Well heres the update.

Firstly have had my left eye done, now its day 8 for it and it has gone so well its untrue. NO haze, no foggy vision, very little pain and eye is settling down very nicely, still not quite back to what it was but not too far off!!!!!!!!!!!! It has shocked me just how well it went.

However the right eye hmmmmmmmm

Saw the Dr who said that the eye is still swollen, this was 24 days after, and that the mark on it he doesnt want to confirm is a scar, he wants to wait longer in hope that it will disapear, however he did state that he had not seen it before in any of his patients. He gave me MAXITROL eye drops and told me to come back in a month.

Have been taking the eye drops but again now day 32 ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGE from day 10 or so and still very worried. The fog is still the same, the eye appears still swollen, have found putting some ice on it for a while the distant vision improves till the eye warms up. I am at a loss of what is happening with the eye and desperately need it back to what it was like pre-op.

The saga goes on ................. :(

ps: any ideas for reducing the swelling????

H, Thanks for letting us know about your appointment. From this experiance, even two eyes from one person can differ in the different (time) stages to the recovery after Corneal Crosslinking, it is not untypical that this is the case when looking at Crosslinking or any of the various treatments. It may be because usually KC effects each eye differently, one being more sever KC/thinner in cornea (and where this is happening on the cornea) than the other.

well its week6 now for the right eye and NO change!!!! :(

Starting to lose all confidence now, the haze in the right still the same, no difference, although in the mornings a couple of times this week I have got down to 6/12 and Im sure without the haze 6/9 or even 6/6 will be possible.

The left eye is changing and is now 2 1/2weeks into recovery and has little to no haze so least one of the eyes seems to be doing what it should.

Seeing the eye doctor next week and going to see what can be done about the haze, is the haze on the cornea or from the removal of the outer cells??????

Would be interested to see if removal of the outer layer, again, would get rid of the haze or if its the cornea thats hazed up................. who knows.

Very concerned about the right eye and my pre-op 6/9 no haze orprobs with lights seems a distant pass never to be had again .................................. :(

Well, if it helps any, my son had haze in one cornea (visible to the ophthalmologist, at least) for eight months after cross-linking.  It has now cleared up.

Near the end, he did a brief course with PredForte (sp?).
Can't say if it was necessary or not, though.

hi,
in my expirience it is not the question of days: it is months. This is how Nature works in our case: slowly. But it is all for the best!
