What are your corneal thickness' ? surely Dr K would not say he can when he can't... really only the medical professional who has the experience in doing this treatment really knows.

Finally i decided to do only the CXL at the BEMO institute at Helaklio! I am only 16 years old and my KC is not too much obove 400 so i don't want to risk the PRK...

Its been 3 months for my CXL-epi-off treatment. I am feeling little pain in my eyes, specially when i am on computer. Facing tiredness in my eyes. Even facing lot of problems with those horrible RGP lens, now its becoming difficult to bear the discomfort & the pain in my eyes.

Pl share your experiences..

How well was you doing before Aarti ?

You know it can take time any surgery to the cornea in KC. Have you additionally been checked for dry eyes at all ? are you using your contacts from before the treatment ? because they may need to be tweeked or changed as the corneas got regulkar more after your treatment.

You need to give it six months at least for the cornea to settle, but it may still change slightly up to a year. What does your medical/clinical team say ?

You need to get your eyes checked, even if it may seem like something minor.

Thanks. Everything was fine, it just started before a week. I had my check up before 20 days. All was well. It could be because of the hot weather maybe. I am not using contacts now. Before the treatment i was using rgp.
Are you using any contacts?
