My name is Tammy and I have wanted to join up for a while now, to tell you my story.

I was told I had KC when I was 12 years old. Until I left school at 16 I wore glasses. My vision was not very good in them but I managed to leave school with enough grades to go to College. Then at the age of 18 I started having even more troubles in seeing clearly and so then started using RGP lenses. Itís been a struggle to wear any type of contact lenses which they tried on me at the clinic but I still continued to try contact lenses as my KC got worse over the years.

About a year ago went on holiday to Ybbs, Austria with friends and saw a news story on TV at the hotel I was staying at on the development of the Myoring in Austria. To cut a long story short, I went back to Austria in Dec 2011 to get screening tests for it and then depending on the results of the tests to get a Myroing implanted in my worst eye (which is my left eye).

I was to be found to be a candidate for the treatment and decided to go head with it.

I was 20/200 (I could barley see the top letter of the eye chart before my treatment). This improved six months after with the vision now being 20/30. To say this has changed my life would be an understatement!

I was told this regained vision would mostly probably still improve, but I am very trilled thus far already with my vision and have opted not to wear glasses or contact lenses for that eye just yet, until we know what the final vision is by the end of the year, and after which I may even have CXL to "seal" the vision.

My right eye has mild to moderate Keratoconus and for the last 8 months I have been wearing a Acuity K soft lens on that eye which gives me 20/25 vision.

I have read a lot on this forum and it has given me the confidence to make my own decisions and which from then was the biggest reason for me choosing to; make me be at the heart of my eye care and my need to see. I am very glad that I did.

I hope you all well in the way you chose to tackle your Keratoconus.

Kind Regards

Tammy

Thanks for your story, this must be the first we are hearing of this from a patient who has had Myorings.

It could be that with CXL added later, you could very well improve even further as a bonus and also it would fix in the final refraction.

My thought and wish is that since you have felt the weight of KC on your life from an early age, its about time things go your way!

Let us know when you have an update to report on.

Wayne

Thanks Wayne, I'll get back in touch if there are any further updates of interest or developments to report on. However with the way its going, with the extra "spring in my step" I have now, I may even forget I ever had KC!

Thanks again and keep well,

Tammy
