Increased ghosting (hazing) after CXL - What improvements can be made on this?
Permalink   
 


Hi 

I am quite new here and only did a cursory look through previous threads so excuse me if this is something that has been gone through many times before.

I have had my left and right cross linked 18 and 9 months ago respectively. My right was better before than the left and now worse, with much more pronounced blurring.
I have noticed quite abruptly recently that there seems to be an increased visual snow and ghosting certainly in my right eye, perhaps left.

Currently I only wear glasses but will have a lens appointment soon. HAs anyone else encountered such issues and were there any lenses that have been beneficial?

 

All the best,

Rob

Hi Rob,

I have not had CXL. But just to give you some hope, CXL is to stabilize the KC not correct it. Well fit contact lenses can work wonders with visual correction for the KC patient. BUT fitting can be a long and frustrating process. There is no one approach or type of lens that works every time for every KC patient. Hopefully your fitter will find a good fit for you quickly, but don't give up if it takes some time. And be reasonable in your expectations. If you have KC, you may never have perfect vision. You may have to settle for vision that let's you live your life without too much distraction.

Thanks Jim,

I suppose a worry is that I do not know what can be achieved with contact lenses, and I worry that I am losing visual acuity perhaps. This was not really the case at the last optometrists appt I went to but still worries me.

 

I have a contact lens appointment for what I belive will be RGP very soon. what abberations could I realistically expect to become reduced? (It seems like there are different names for everys single type...)

 

Again thank you for the reply.

Rob

KC is such a variable condition that I don't think anyone ever knows what can be corrected without a trial. Dr. G in Texas is one of the few people with a successful objective approach to fitting for KC.
