Hello Zenke,

You should take the advice of your very own Dr, as they will know if you are with in the guidlines for treatment. As long as your cornea is not too thin or too steep you can only gain, only your Dr can make a judement on this from the readings s/he has taken from your cornea. At the advantages it may be too late for treatment. As always - the earlier the better.

Best of luck and keep your chin up !smilesmilesmile

Zenke, you won’t lose your vision from cxl, only the cornea shape changes for the better. As discussed, the healing process is six months, however, the change in cornea may show you different ghosting post operation. As long as the corneas freezes which this surgery promises, it is worth every cent. Stay positive and patient during the healing process. It will be the best thing you will do for yourself.

It will be two months in another 10 days time since my surgery. The vision quality is getting back to pre-op level. It seems like pupils are bigger now than pre-op or it could just be me observing too closely. The eyes are dry and itch after long hours infront of the computer. Not sure how to distract from itching..I usual put Thera tears which provide temporary relief.

Hi so nice to hear that it is back to preop levels! I have my CXL for the worst eye on monday holds your thumbs :) The better eye will be done if any sign of KC progression is seen by the eye doctor. I am also looking for some soft lenses which might reduce the ghosting for the best eye, this project never really ends :) But it will be nice to know that i wont get much worse atleast.

Do you also have much better vision in good lighting, now i just love the sun due to that, the pupils get smaller and my worst corena irregularites seems to be in the outside :)

Hi it is done! Just got back from the X-link, hehe i have enjoyed more pleasuring things. They used some alcohol to loosen the epitel before scraping it off.

The pain is starting to come, the doctors told me to eat normal painkillers hopefully it will reduce it. Tomorrow morning i will go back for checkup.

Will update any vision and haze status when i have :)

Good stuff, Henrik. smile.gif

Along with the pain killers take a sleeping pill. It helped me get through the first 24 hours. Just hang in there for the first two weeks and take it easy on the operated eye. Rest the eye often and don't rub or drive. Keep us posted.

Hi hehe i went to bed 7pm could sit, had such pain, but couldnt sleep either. I slept like 30 min during whole night :) Went to the hospital extra early, a minor miss I should have gotten some heaver painkiller the normal stuff didnt cope with that pain. Now i am some morhine stuff that works, or it is finally getting better. I didnt think pain should be that severe, but i blame it on too weak painkillers :)

I got some real nice Haze will be interesting to see how long it will last. I am not that light sensitive atleast not from indoor lighting thats good.

Soon the real interesting part will come, to see if there will be any changes either negativt or postive :). If nothing bad happends i will not visit the hospital again until next week.

For the next patient they CXL they will give more painkillers i am sure after have seen me this morning :)

Br Henrik

only 30 minutes of sleep? That must have been tough. Avoid TV and computer if you can for a few days. Since you can see from the good eye, you could be inadvertantly making the operated eye work too. Anything with the eye is major, give them a rest. Did they give you copies of pre-op topographies? You should keep a copy for your records.

Good morning, today 75% of the pain is gone and by looking in the mirror it seems like the epitelium has healed. Yesterday i could see a small ring. Now i have a red eye which was sticky in the morning, is that normal? I called the hospital since i am their first they couldnt really answer.

This nice i sleept some hours, still it feels like resting is the best, i underestimated this treatment :( It took more energy than i could figure, i was like this is nothing until the eye painkillers for the operation wore off :)

Will get orbscan pictures from them, both before and after, will try to get them electronically too, to compare if there is any differnce.

Back to some resting. Soon it is 48h since they removed the epitelium.
