I had a cornea transplant 9 years ago. Every time there is a dramatic weather change, especially with a 10 degree or plus drop in temperature in the same day, my eye is in alot of pain. I wear RGP contact lens on a daily basis, but the pain is present even without the lens. My question is. What is the cause of this pain? Is it the way the cornea healed? Could it be the scar? I am having PRK surgery because of fit issues with the RGP lens. The doctor performing the surgery says that the surgery will help with my lens issue but not with the change in weather days. Is there anything else I could do, or suggest to him to help me with all the days I'm in pain?
