I really never realized how much discomfort that my Keratoconus caused me – especially when it came to daily activities, routines, etc. I am thrilled with the way things are going. The drops are a hassle and so is the nightime shield, but every day is better. Things get itchy a couple of times daily, but that might just be due to Springtime in Kentucky rather than the sutures, etc. No pain, no redness. I am getting anxious to get a new prescription, but I know this would be wasteful as my vision fluctuates. I realize also that I am going to need reading glasses – more related to my age than my eyes.
The real risk I guess is that I’m constantly forgetting I had the graft – I must remind myself to wear the shield at night and to use the drops – I use my iPhone to remind myself (and my wife helps.) My eye used to be the focal point of each day – now it just focuses on life for me.
