Thanks to the title change, i felt to read the thread as i find similar problem with me.
I had cataract surgery on 6th march 2012.Im 30 yr old male with dry eye and sjs, rough eyelids,low vision.
When i went for surgery. the doctors were hardl able to do the keratometry coz eyes would get dry just so soon.
They were able to do the keratometry several times though with many attempts.But interestingly,
they found cornea size different with every attempt.They were saying sometimes it comes to 47 sometimes 53...I asked them to see my other eye if it gives same kind of variation.But they found other eyes cornea size to be of same measurement on 3 attempts.
Also, they checked my needed power on the machine.But in morning it showed -10 and in evening when my eyes were feeling more dry and fed up due to all the check up procedures it came to -17!
So variation of power upto 7 Diopters!!
This is making me confused.Even it was confusing for doctors a bit, as i saw by the way they were discussing my pre surgery procedures.i heard the doctor suspecting KERATOCONUS. Corneal irregularities are associated with keratoconus.
But when i checked about this to my regular optho doctor (who did not operate me but sent me to a cataract specialist) , he told me due to sjs and dry eyes, cornea gets uneven at times.So mild keratoconus is persistent with such eyes.
Im not sure why this happens. Rebecca or any other BSL wearers can let me know if they face such problems and get benifited with BSLs?Im really curious to know this coz im banking upon BSL to get me out of this problem of varying vision. My other eye is aphakik and has finger counting vision.So i need the best vision in my recently operated eye.
Really need to be a ROCK to take the pain!
