Implantable Contact Lenses

I have pathological myopia.  My corrected vision is 20/70 and 20/90. My lenses are -11 and -15.  I have worn corrective contacts for over 40 years.  What has happen now is that I am unable to wear lenses anymore because they have permently left a grove on my eyes.  Now when I try to wear glasses my eyes burn so bad that I am in tears.  My Doctor is considering implantable Contact Lense surgery from the Gimble Eye Centre in Canada does anyone have any thoughts.

Have you sought a second, or third opinion?  It's just so serious--if it were me, I know I'd want to get some other doctors having a look at my eyes and finding out what they might recommend.  Also, if you've been wearing hard lenses all this time, have you tried custom fitted soft lenses?  Perhaps that could be an option.
