Well, my first post-graft contact lens is wonderful, but I think the fit needs adjusted.
The insertion and vision have been just fine, but I’ve been having difficulties with removing the lens. I’m competent with mini-Sclerals but this one seems too tight. It’s nerve wracking to pull a “stuck” lens off a grafted cornea with a plunger. I have this nighmare image that I’ll rip the graft off (I know, probably impossible.)
But this lens is too tight, so I’m going back to discuss it with the fitter.
Postscript: Another great appointment at Koffler Vision… New lens with slightly different edge “roll” was ordered. Also we looked at my topography to decide where it best for me to apply the plunger to remove the lens (cool use of technology!) … the traditional 6-oclock position may not be best for me – 4-oclock looks like a flat area I can use. Will post again if I have new news!
Allergy News: My eye has been getting red – allergies I’m pretty sure. It’s not “rejection-red” but just red around the edges. Any corneal transplant recipient will be hyper-vigilant about redness, so this causes some anxiety. The best thing to do is just take some Zyrtec and check again in a day. I’m now taking Zyertec daily again.
