Another battle won
Permalink   
 


Hi guys,


Today is a great day. I just went back from the optometrist and found that I get pretty normal vison using just an ordinary glasses.


I consider that the best success up to now... glases couldnt help me at ll before the operation. Here comes the parameters.


OD -2.0  60 deg


OS -0.5  70 deg


I will be visiting the optometrist after two weeks. Then I will be taking another topographic scan and corneal thinkness scan.


So, guys, crosslinking is one thing that, it seems, really works.


Talk to you soon.


Cheers,


Valeri


P.S I would'nt dare imagne what it will be with frontwave ...

Yesterday I visited my optometrist for regular check. I have no change since the last time (September). I will continue using glassess and will check in another 6 months (or earlier if I feel a change).


Best luck to all...

Three years ago, when they found I had keratoconus, and when I realised I had vision problems they did a correction with glassess and I could see pretty well with them. I remember I had three diopters on the right and diopter or two on the left. Then I started wearing lens, ignorant of the fact that this may complicate the things.

After two years of wearing lens, The first year ok, the second was hell, I had to switch to rose K... I tried at that time to use glassess. To some extent they could correct my better eye, but for the worst eye it was mission impossible. I remember it turned out that I had more than 5 diopters on the worst eye and much astigmatism, but even this couldn't provide me vision. So that is why it is very hard for me to say what was the status before the operation.

It's prettygood: from OD -5 to OD -2...
With my OD -12 it seems a paradise....
Which means the same old thing: the earlier, the better....

Hello fellows,


Just to keep you updated. I visited my optometrist and found that my vision is stable. That confirmed my subjective feeling, as I feel ok with the glasses. There is no need of correction or change of glasses.


Cheers,


Valeri
