As I mentioned in the last post how radiotherapy side effects has caused damage to the surface of my eyes. Well today I had a follow up to see how the regular use of a lubrication ointment has (hopefully) helped in allowing the eye surface to repair.
Well today It was suggested that I should try using contact lenses over the glasses I got a few months back. This will have a dual benefit by correcting my short sightedness and to provide a protective barrier to the surface of the eye.
I’ve been supplied with five days of disposable lenses to see if the contacts don’t irritate the eyes or introduce an infection. Well the first six hours were total bliss! The feeling when blinking felt silky smooth as opposed to gritty and dry.
I’m hoping that this allows my eyes to heal or at least settle to the point where they don’t deteriorate any further. So this is still a work in progress.
More to follow…
