Corneal Haze After Cross Linking
Permalink   
 


Hello everyone

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have done cross linking in both eyes. 4 months have passed for the right eye and 2 months for the left. Both corneas are still a little hazy. The haze can be noticed mostly at night when looking at light. The haze has remained the same, no noticeable or gradual improvement.

As more people do this procedure, I believe more will have this complication and as a result become worried and paranoid as to whether it will eventually go away or become permanent. So I opened this thread so I can share with you my follow ups, and hopefully more patients will be aware of these rare complications, and it will help them whether pre or post operation.

I also see now bigger haloes, starbursts as well as glare. Itís the 6th of December 2009.

Will keep you posted.

Bye

Hi Zk,

I hope your Dr has adviced you that it takes six to one year for full recovery, but mostly around the six month mark for those who was the best candidate from the tests done before treatment, and it depends a lot of how advanced your KC is at treatment, its better done earlier, as with all treatments usually, but if your Dr (who are they, please post their web site) has followed the guidlines as with any treatment and also given you relistic expectations, then that is something good, if your in doubt about this advice you must re-ask this with your medical team as they are able to assess your situation from looking at your eyes.

Best of luck

KR

Hi Kreading

I have been told 3 to 6 months during my regular follow ups. My next appointment is in 1 week on the 15th and Iím going to ask them a few questions about this. The thing is the haze is very little, but it is there. So before I used to think I saw this glare and halo because I am not wearing contacts yet, but around 3 weeks ago I visited an optometrist and he told me my cornea is a bit hazy. I did the surgery at the Ottawa Eye Institute. I was diagnosed with keratoconus around 7 months ago. I noticed my vision has been getting worse so like most people visited my optometrist and that is where he referred me to the eye hospital.
