Double vision/ghosting after cross linking epi off
Permalink   
 


Hi,

Firstly just wanted to say this is a great forum, i've found a lot of comfort reading other peoples experiences with kc.

I'm 22 and had x linking performed on my left eye on the 24th of May. My vision pre op was 6/6, I just had some slight halo effects at night.
My right eye is my bad eye and am looking to having a graft as I recently got a corneal ulcer and was left with a small scar. Thats another story though!

At the moment my vision has improved since the op, haze is much less of a problem and while still sensitive to sunlight it's not nearly as bad as the first week.

My concern at the moment is over the past few days I've started to see double vision or ghosting through my left cross linked eye. I can see a ghost image of everying directly above the actual image.

Should I be concerned or have other people experienced this when recovering? Is it due to my corneal fluctuating due to the x linking? If so how long will this ghosting last?

Lastly, I work on computers and have been finding it very hard to work for more than 3-4 hours at a time. Should I look into getting a contact lens to improve my vision untill I have recovered? Is it ok to wear a soft lens 3 weeks post op?

Thanks :)

My vision is still blurry but is improving, this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

It can take around 3 months for you to regain the vision you had pre op (from reading this forum) but can be sooner according to my doc, it varies from person to person.

Have you noticed any ghosting ? I see double of most things directly above them at the moment

I had a consultation for CXL and asked about the recovery - there will be swelling of the cornea early during the 3 months post op time, which will settle down and vary from person to person in amount. Also Haze can scatter the light, this should fade a way by six months and for some linger a little longer up to a year, but not effecting vision much at all after 6 months post CXL.

Hello, Need some help advice from fellow KC patients!! My history is that I have severe KC on my right and moderate on my left. However I have been told to have CXL on left so it doesn't progress. With my right right eye the cornea has become to thin and i may need a transplant. I had CXL done on my left eye 10 days ago. My left eye had almost perfect vision before the op. however, after the op I am experiencing hazy and foggy vision. The most worrying thing is the double and almost strobing effect of light...which was never there before the op. Is this something you guys have experienced? Is it normal? Will I ever get my perfect vision back on good eye? Pls help!! Ps the docs say this is normal...I am starting lose faith!!

It is difficult to have the good eye treated when the other eye has bad vision...but it is early days in the recovery and your Dr is rightin what he says,in waiting it out.

The healing is in stages and over the days and weeks things will come back round again as seen in the many many studies on this treatment.

Have faith, it will take a while for the inital healing to be over.
