Hi Tamer,

After CXL, the recovery is in stages, by six months your corneas should settle down, the recovery is said to be at six months, but there can be still improvements up to a year. You are on the right side with regards to time frames.

I took this from an article I read.....
Generally this minor haze disappears without any treatment, but a supportive therapy with soothing ointment or with a local steroid (i.e. FML or Prednisone) can be used.

Must talk to your doc,haze should have mostly dissapeared by now,but from what I took in that article there is a treatment.

Yes, it should be sooner, but it can vary and for a fraction of people, however slight, and for most people not noticeable, the haze can linger on fading away gradually.

I remember a similar post before where in one eye the haze cleared quickly (the bad eye) and in the persons good eye, the haze cleared away slowly. It might be dependant on the thinkenss of the corneas involved, level of KC also, but most of all it could be a relative thing, because you can see "good" out of the good eye, but the haze can be seen more clearly too. But as already mentioned please ask your Dr to rule out anything else to get peace of mind.

Hello Tamer

I also have corneal haze 4 months after the surgery too. Before I never really brought it up with the doctors since Im sure they could see it and it was normal during that time period. Now Im really getting worried it hasnt changed at all and its been 4 months. Ill let you know what they say next week.
