It is tough to insert contact lenses and those which need to be put in precisely. With practice things will get easier.

The main thing is - if there is progression...YOU NEED TO SEE A SPECIALIST FOR CROSSLINKING.

Please do this as soon as you can. This means - get a consultation.

@deb okay. confessions, the treatments and everything are so scary and again, risky. I deserve the caps lock. I just wish you could yell that in front of me for the wake, its like I'm in denial. I will try to go again next week on my day off. if you can tell by the way I typed is that, I am so terrified. Can I hug you?

Knowledge will dissipate fear. Anything got to do with contact lenses or surgical options has risks, yet you must balance that with the risk of progression, which if left untreated could be riskier and there are the risks involved with having little vision too

If its not told that progression can be treated, then it may be asked (as often is the case) why wasn't I told.Contact lens can get ever more complex and also surgery where then the cornea needs to be replaced

Getting a consultation with an experienced ophthalmologist is a must to find out about your options.

I send a hug from KC patient to KC patient. We are all in the same boat.

Good luck and its only a consultation, to gather more facts to aid you in making a choice.

hi deb! I am not the best candidates for corneal cross linking yet so my doctors are forcing me to learn how to wear contact lens and good news is, slowly, I am getting there. I am getting free sessions on practicing to wear it. Left eye is the hardest to put it on. And just because right now my light sensitivity isn't worse like it used to and I don't really wear sunglasses that much but at night still hurts abit, do you think I should take it lightly? The fact that my light sensitivity isn't worse? Yeah, I don't know how this eye disease works. Its painless but it can go wrong unexpectedly.

Did you tell this to your eye care specialist ?

And why was you not suitable for Crosslinking ? (there are two types, epi on and epi off)

yeah I did and my optemitrist or doctors says its progressing. its progressing but somehow I feel like I am not satisfied with the answer. can sceral contact lens reversed the cornea? my optemitrist says no but it can only slows down. *sigh* i want good news. but I kinda forgot to ask why aren't I the candidate yet tho. actually I wanted to ask abt this but the doctors didnt offer me corneal cross linking so I was afraid to ask. i really don't know how to argue doctors suggestions. they only give either rgp or sceral contct lenses. done. *shrug* im getting new spectacle lenses meanwhile... apart from this, I have good news heheh I just got an interview from the uni that I wanted and my best friend is getting married. yay!
