It's too early, wait for a month or two and you will see the benefits

Thanks for your comment KC Greek.† Went for a check up on Thursday and they said everything is healing fine.† Couldonly read the E on the eye chart in my eye and with correction was able to read the 20/40 line.† There was considerable blurring.† I've noticed some changes and today is certainly better.With the eye chart I have in the house I can now make out what theimage should be but can not make out the letter.† This is because of blurring and ghosting.† I am thinking there are signs of improvement there.† The difficult thing is knowing what improvement to expect.† I am reminded by the people at accuvision that the priority was to stop things getting worse and any improvements would be an added bonus.† I will update again in a few days.biggrin

Apologies for not responding for so long.† The right eye settled well and having gone back to Accuvision recently my uncorrected vision is not 6/18 and had improved from when I last went.† Having had conversations with one of the staff there it is quite clear that they are not prepared to take the higher risk of correcting to 20/20 vision and are watching the progress from Greece with interest.†

I have recently had my left eye operated on and am in the recovery phase now.† The operation was considerably more painful and uncomfortable this time aswas the recovery.† The eyeball has felt incredibly sore and painful probably until today.† I noticed during the operation that the procedure had changed.† During the riboflavin process a ring was placed on my eye with the riboflavin in and so there was not the requirement for it to be dropped in every two minutes.† When I asked about this he said it concentrates the riboflavin around the cornea and avoids it going to the rest of the eye.

My left eye was the eye with better vision in the first place so will be interesting to see the improvements in the coming months.† I also asked about the opportunity of further surgery in the future.† He said that it is very piossible that they could do further laser surgey when they eye has settled.† He said that the thickness of my corneas was very unusual and this allows for greater scope for additional laser.† He said that at the thinest points of my cornea was thicker than some of the thickest points in other patients.

I HOPE in three months time I will at least have what I consider 'functional vision', in which I will need glasses /contacts to sharpen things up, much like many others.

I will keep you posted on the progress on this eye and my overall vision.†

Thank you for all the support this forum gave me to go ahead with the operation.† It is also worth mentioning the care and aftercare from Accuvision is second to none and I would highly recommend them.

Cheers
Pedlos
