X-linking after-maths

While I'm recovering from post operational trauma I can't use a computer.(I'm dictating this letter.) Just wanted to let you know that up to this moment everything is OK, as planned. When my vision come back I will be reporting thoroughly.


Talk to you soon.

Best wishes to you and great to hear from you Valeri...I wish you a speedy recovery and congratulations!!

I would like to thank you for keeping us informed by being a pioneer for many who would like to follow in your foot steps...


You know your view about having X-Linking done and then to wear your contacts afterwards is a very intelligent decision...as the strenthening of the cornea which occurs after X-Linking (which has been shown in studies to stop the progression of kc) can also I think, have an equally positive impact on stopping any contact lenses induced kc llke corneal problems to occur as well...

I think there is a very good chance of that....which could very well be the additional benift of X-Linking which other pioneering contact lens wearers I think should seriously think about as well...

I think there will be much interest in this field which is currently not being spoken about as the thinking on this has just started on here:)...which is another first for KC Freedom

The views you hold I think is a very valid ones...

All the best...mate!!

Hi Valeri,


Best of luck for the results of your operation. I dont think I'm wrong in saying you are one of the first pioneer patients of this technique... I think you have made a very brave and I'm sure calculated decision to do this. I have to admit that I know very little about cross linking, so I very much hope that you continue to contribute the forum and educate us all.


Best Regards,


Hari Navarro

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to update the status. It is the 13th day after the procedure. The epithelium is already closed and recovering, however my vision is still very low.

Will keep you posted

Valeri

Thanks Quintrix for the support!


Otherwise I am still recovering. The vision is still fluctuating, however I tried my first lens and the funny thing was that they fitted ok... the new Rose K are not good anymore ... This I find to be regression of the conus, however I will not be overenthusiastic untill I see the new ceratography. I will wait for a month and will do such. I have the pictures of my topography before the operation. So I will post them both to compare when I have the new pictures.


And another thing... looking throw the lens I once more had the perfect vision. However I took them off very soon, because I am still not fully recovered.


Will report again soon ;)


Valeri

Hello Valeri....that is some positive news....as you know the rose k's cup your kc cones for it to work....and as such this may be why they don't work properly as may be your cones have regressed!

I think your over the first stages of your recovery...and you can look forward to more of a comfortable recovery over the next few weeks...

Thank you for keeping us informed....and I hope you a speedy recovery...

All the Best

These days vision is continuing to restore. I am using theurapeutic lens, my local doctor advised, and I believe they are helping alot. I asked prof. Kohlhaas about it and he said its ok with these lens.


Vision is fluctuating. The left eye, which is less touched by the K, is recovering stronger and from time to time, probably with the help of the theraupetic lens has sharp enough vision to read even normally. From time to time vision is low, but dr. Kohlhaas said its ok with that, and that fluctuation will continue for several months until it stabilizes.
