My Eye!

I had my Corneal Cross-Linking done last week. It was a trying experience since I had to watch the whole thing. I say that because they do not put you to sleep. They use a reverse clamp to hold your eye open, add some numbing drops and then do what they do. They sterilized my eye using giant betadine swabs. There were a lot of drops and then he cleaned cells off of my eye using an alcohol solution and a cotton swab on a stick. Then, there were more drops followed by some pics on a machine, more drops and then 2,000,000 mins (or 5 mins) under the UVA lamp including two breaks for more drops. Then, they placed a contact bandage and we were done.
I got the bandage removed today and found out that I have to be without contacts for another week; that’ll be 3wks total. I have to be off work during this time because I can’t see without then. I’M OVER IT! .

  1. Hello, I have to have cross linking done and would like to ask you some questions.

    How long did you have to wait after the procedure was done to wear your contacts again?

    Did you have to get a new prescription or did you use the same lenses you had before surgery?

    Thanks
