SimLC - Topograpy-guided PRK + simultaneous CXL
Permalink   
 


Hi,

as promised now please find attached my Topography (pentacam) of my RIGHT eye (OD), two days before my surgery at the Wellingtion Eye Clinic in Dublin.

Surgeon: Dr. Cummings

Surgery date: 26/05/2011

Costs: 100 € consulting  / 2450 € (PRK+CXL)

____________

My LEFT eye (OS) is already crosslinked since 8 months (see second topography).

If the operation on the right eye should be a success I wonder to do a topography guided PRK on the left eye too, maybe in 5 months.

I will post my 1M/3M/6M and 12 M topographies here too. Please wish me luck.

_____________


Regards


Andi

If you can get back to normaity (uncorrected and/or corrected), that would be a big step forward! best of luck, although you have done your research so luck does not come in to it!smile

I wanted just to check on you!

Hung on there. :))))))))

Hi,

today I was in my Berlin University Clinic Charité for my topographies.

I am not sure what I should think about it.. My doctor there told me I have to wait 2-3 months until the data quality gets better. He also wasn´t able to judge if the surgery was good or not.

At the moment I have a standard soft toric lens (Air Optix Astigmatism) for the transition period in my right eye. One positive experience was that I came to 70% vision with it.  My fitter said thats quite good. Maybe a first good sign.

The strange thing in the topographies is that the astigmatism is higher than before, but Dr. Cummings told me 1d after the operation that this is not easy comparable because he made a steepening to correct a part of my sphere too.

Remarkable is that the steep part is now more central. My Dr. in Berlin confirmed this and thinks this is a good aspect. Hope I will find a good lens with this shape.

I sent the topos to Dr. C. today. I am excited what he says.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a special scleral lens fitter. I think I will try it with my left eye. I have never worn a mini scleral. Please wish me luck, that this lense will help me to get back in job.

Any comments of you are welcome!


Best regards

 

Andi

As you know it will take time for things to settle down, with PRK or CXL, with both too, its going good so far. Have you got any haze ?

With the left eye did Dr C comment on if the same (PRK+CXL) can be done ? with regards to your corneal readings (ie cornea thickness etc) and if a good result may be able to be reached ? (able to wear soft lenses or glasses to a point for functional vision aided and unaided vision)

The mini sclerals - I tried them one time, great vision and comfort, but since I had good vision in the other eye I never mastered how to put it in the eye due to a lack of motivation probably, but if you can find the nack to get it in the eye it should be easy there after, it just takes a bit of time to master it.

Still I think you still have options if needed (So clear ? kerasoft? Keraflex...)

Best of luck, and its fantasic what you have done for the vision so far

Wayne

Usually (as you know) things are worse for a while before it gets better, and back to where things started, and even impove slightly in a lot of cases just with CXL alone in the first few months. The wait is tough during that time, particularly because your other eye still needs some good vision. Best of luck, I wish you well on your recovery.
