  • Questions about doing a Superficial Keratectomy this week under General Anesthesia

    I'm supposed to do a Superficial Keratectomy on Tuesday for my left eye. I am completely terrified as I have some super sensitivity that prevents anything from touching my eye. I have never even been able to have a doctor put a contact lens on my eye.

    In my case, they will do it under General...

    RCE and living alone

    Hi all, I've suffered with RCE since a trauma last year. I'm so happy I've found this forum because the main thing I struggle with is the loneliness of noone knowing what I go through, being scared to fall asleep. I was wrongly diagnosed several times and could only start treatment (lubricating drops...

  • RCE, Severe Dry Eye, Infection, Scarring

    My lovely relationship with dry eyes is a fairly long one. I was told as a young teenager after getting a battery of tests done for other issues that I had some sort of marker that means in predisposed to dry eye syndrome. They left if at that and I the time I thought "I went through all this and...

  • PTK - how safe? how successful? complications?

    I had RCEs for almost a yr straight, then had a hiatus of about 6-8 months with none. They started up again 8 weeks ago. I was in denial for 3 weeks, though I had significant pain and greatly decreased acuity. Finally, I went to a new doc, an OD, and she suggested bandage contact lenses BCL. I have...

  • Anyone know of good ophthalmologist in Maryland?

    I have gone to both a corneal specialist and a neuro-ophthalmologist at a well-known teaching hospital in Maryland, but neither have ever explained much of what is wrong with my eyes. They did not even tell me I had MGD, EBMD, RCEs, as well as anesthesia dolorosa. I discovered some of my diagnoses,...

  • I'm back (RCE) but now it's for my 4 year old son.

I had so much trouble getting a diagnosis, and was extremely frustrated before finding this forum, self-diagnosing and finding a doctor who was aware of this condition through a recommendation (Thanks so much Dry Eye Zone!!). I ended up having 2 surgeries...
