... Late November 2012, I got a paper-cut in my cornea. It was pretty bad...the paper was kinda thick. The doctor put me on antibiotic drops followed by Prednisolone. I'm a steroid responder so the Prednisolone drops elevated my eye pressure. I had to also use Refresh drops because my eyes became a bit dry. I thought I was doing fine. The doctor saw through the slit-lamp... (2 replies)

... I had the stromal puncture surgery done for RCE 10 years ago. The surgery was a breeze, and done within 15 minutes in the doctor's office. The doctor put some device over my eye so I could not even see what he was doing. The recovery was the worst part. I remember he told me that my eye is going to feel like a mack truck hitting me once the numbing wore off. ... (1 replies)
... I have had recurrent corneal abrasions for 3 years in one eye. I now have the worst one yet. My vision is blurry which is causing awful headaches. My eye doctor referred me to an eye surgeon to repair my cornea. I can't get an appointment with the surgeon for a couple of weeks. I have a huge eye phobia and this whole mess makes me want to throw up. I get nauseated just... (1 replies)

... PTK, I'm happy to relay my experience.... I often had this strange feeling that the cornea was being 'tugged' but not actually eroding. I forget when you had your surgery, but that tugging feeling went away after maybe a year or so. ... (7 replies)
... Hi Mike, It is so nice to hear from you! I am very happy that you feel better, since you helped so many of us with your good advice. Since my superficial ketactotomy I haven not had an erosion.. although I have dry eyes, and the doc put the punctual plug, and it is doing the job.

... ness of PTK because every doctor says something else. In my case it gave me peace for only a couple of years. I dont know if I would do it again.

... Hi everyone! Mike, Judy and others, I had the total superficial keractotemy done on August 18th. It was a fast procedure. My whole ephitelium was scraped... the first day after the surgery was very painfull and I took ibuprofen 800 mg every 3 to 4 hours and had anesthetic drops for the pain. But, in the second day the pain subsided, and after that was less and less. A week... (125 replies)

... Hello Freidi, If the doc says he sees "maps," he's probably referring to map-dott-fingerprint dystrophy (I wrote d-o-t as "dott" because this site often kills words associated with websites). It's a type of epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, and very common, especially in those with RCE. As far as PTK changing the refraction... that's possible, but for me it didn't... (125 replies)
... e examines me. I will also clarify if he is going to make the procedure in the entire cornea, or only on part of it, and I will definitely mention that the whole cornea is a more efficient treatment..I will get back to you and everyone on that! ... (125 replies)
... Hi Freidi, It has been a long time since I posted here. I had PTK in 2001 and that stopped my erosions. Your doc is glossing over some details, I think. I have EBMD, and my other eye took 8 years to start developing signs that erosions might begin. So yes, with a dystrophy, you might get erosions in the other eye, but not necessarily starting at the same time. Many... (125 replies)
