Banking job and Keratoconus
Permalink   
 


Hello,it s not the first time I post here,every time I posted ,people responded,and I am thankful to them for that.I got another problem and again it is job related.My family and everybody else is pressuring  me to take a banking job even though I am not sure I can handle it with my keratoconus problem.I have kc in my right eye and amblyopia in my left,I went through cross-linking and got keratoconus stopped from advancing,for now anyway.I wear glasses and my doctor who is miles and miles away never asked me to try contact lenses which is weird even though I did explain that my vision is not good.I feel tired all day and I got bad headaches 3-4 days a week and they last all day even after taking painkillers and even with systane eyedrops.Also I have some spacing problems like bumping into things and sometimes I think that some objects are closer to me but in reality they are a little bit further or I miss some things even if those things are right in front of me.Not always but a lot of times this things happen to me.

I got fired from a job as a receptionist at a hotel cause I was moving to slow and missing out on numbers and letters from papers and computer due to you know what.And now an opportunity with a job in an institution similar to a bank has arrived.It s not a bad job but the problem is me.It might happen that I make one tiny mistake,miss a number or something, at that job and I could go to jail,cause it s about money and laws.I don t know if I should take this job.Is there a way,a trick to cope with kc so I can take this job? how do people suffering from keratoconus manage to keep office jobs? for me is difficult and needs a lot of effort even writing this section.

Anyyyywayyy,thank you for your attention

You should be going down the contact lens route and then seeing if they may help you or not, and then take it from there. Usually a contact lenses should work, but of course its up to you on the treatments available.

Ok so wearing contact lenses improves vision drastically over eyeglasses? can you do office work,like working with numbers? how about headaches?will there be more,less or at the same frequency?
Also I would like to add that this problems and symptoms that I have are not caused by cross-linking surgery.I have these problems from before surgery.The surgery did its job,it stopped the progression of kc,I don t want it to sound like it was a side effect of the surgery.

You need to find and contact lens fitter who is a specialist in KC, and then see which one out of the many contact lenses and fits will work for you. It may be quick, it might take time for find whats best for your KC. However you need to get a consultation.

dailychaos, yes, contact lenses can dramatically improve your vision over glasses. For a person with KC, contact lenses are more about reducing the irregularities of the cornea than providing the refractive correction that glasses provide. You almost certainly need both corrections but, if you aren't getting good enough vision that you can perform office work, you need something to deal with the irregularities of your corneas due to the KC. You need to see a contact lens fitter who is experienced with KC. They can be hard to find. It might be worth trying to find someone who fits Kerasoft IC soft lenses for keratoconus. If they already have the eight lens diagnostic set, that is some indication that they have at least some KC fitting experience. The reason I suggest finding someone who can fit Kerasoft IC is because the fitting process is relatively simple and can be done without corneal topography if necessary. That may make it easier to find someone who can help you improve your vision to the point where you can work comfortably and confidently and do it without the long process of fitting and adapting to rigid lenses.
