I have been under the care of an opthalmologist since late September 2007 for a corneal ulcer and bacterial eye infection. I believe this was caused by persistent wear of my monovision contact lens. The Dr. was able to irradicate the bacterial infection, which was very painful on my part. I have since discontinued the use of the antibiotic ( as of October) and continue to reduce the number of times I put in steriod drops. I am now a once every three days. My cornea continues to show signs of improvement. In November a topography exam showed my astigmatism at 7.53 and in late January at just .53. I continue to have blurred vision and do not see well with bright lights, glare or during night driving with heavy car lights arounds me. My Dr. suggests I could completely overcome this vision disability. My question is how much longer could this scar continue to thin or clear up? I will see my Dr again this week and and believe he will note improvement as I believe I see better today than I did 6 weeks ago. Is it time to look to KTP or other form of correction, or just let nature take her course?
