My most recent appointment, last Tuesday was inn no way a success. A contact lens has been made for me to attempt to correct the distorted shape of my cornea. This could give the effect of a corneal transplant without the surgery. I was concerned about wearing a lens as I wore them years ago and found them quite uncomfortable, but as I am receiving a lot of support from hospital staff this time, I had nothing to lose by giving it a go.
However, try as I might, I couldn’t get the lens in. My eyes are apparently small, and the lens is big, as I was blinking out the smaller ones when I had it fitted a few weeks ago. As it is a hard lens I couldn’t take it home to keep trying as it could damage my eye if used incorrectly.
So, I have to go back again in a week and a half’s time to try again, but I don’t hold out much hope.
All this and I don’t even know if it will improve my sight much once it is actually in as the lighting is so bad in the hospital that I couldn’t tell.
