Good afternoon ! I'm glad there are forums like these to discuss important health issues. I've had "surfer's eye" on my left eye for a number of years and was told at first to leave it alone. Now it's aggravating me and actually worrying me and I feel the time has come to remove it. I've heard of the "no-stitch" method being the newest procedure in lue of bare sclera; the regrowth rate being lower and the procedure having less recovery time. Sounds good to me but my concern is the cost as I have no insurance.How much do these procedures normally cost? Would you be able to recommend a program or grant I could be eligible for that would help defray the expense? Thanks so for your help and advice.
