Thank you for your input.    I think I might wait another couple months.  I will then be 5 months post op.   How long is recovery from PRK?   The main thing I am worried about is needing a transplant and then the ICL and C3R I paid for will be a waste of my money if PRK goes bad.  Both doctors that recommended PRK do not think I will based on the thickness of my corneas but neither one of them will make a guarantee.

bbrunsell, After I had the cross linking done, my prescription for the first 3 to 4 months was different but no better than before. I think the haze had somethng to do with this. Things radically changed (for the better) after 5 months. I went through 3 different prescriptions in the first year. I also had to get a 2nd opinion on my prescription to get it right. There were times that I though my vision was getting worse but it was actually getting better and my prescription was just off. Personally, I'd hold off on anything too radical luntil things stabalize with the cross linking which can take up to 1-2 years. All the best.

dg22 - your certainly right, it does take a while for things to settle down, which is the case often in any interventioon to the cornea, its less of a worry with Crosslinking as its minimally invasive for the candidate and its not like contact lenses that just masks KC, but tackles the cause in the case of the corneal tissues weakening.

I am just in the process of keeping track of my progression (if indeed it does) and will be at the first sign of change undertaking Epi off Crosslinking. I do not have no worries about this as there is more than enough information I have read here since joining up, that makes it the only sensible thing to do.

If you get on fine with contact lenses, then keep a check on the situation (altough to do this you would need to keep your contact lenses out for some weeks to do a topography...you could go with out contact lenses one eye at a time to still be able to get around) and just take it from there.

The pin hold test will give a good indication of where your vision could reach during the recovery phase when there are changes going on within the cornea while the cornea is healing.

Hi bbrunsell,

 

Hope you are doing great with your Keratoconus. It has been almost 7 years since you have done the Epo-on C3R and ICL at the same time. I am trying to do Epo-on and one year later planning to do ICL. I am interested in getting your feedback on how your vision performing 7 years later.

 

Did you Keratoconus stopped progressing?

Was the Epo-on C3R effective for you? 

How is your vision now with the ICL?

 

Many thanks in advance
