It has been almost a year since I have updated this blog with anything new.
I would like to say that this is because there is nothing new to add, however, unfortunately, it is quite the reverse! After trying to live with the INTAC implant for a year, and with numerous contact lenses tried and failed to sit over the top of it, I made the decision to reverse the process.
The good news was that this was a simple enough process, a little painful but in the big scheme of things, not too bad. My vision fluctuated a bit and I felt a little dizzy, but for the most part there have been no additional ill effects from its removal. Since this, two months ago, I am now trying a larger lens again. However, again my vision is still poor even with this new lens which I had hoped would not be the case – whether this is because I have let my left eye grow weak from a lack of use (given the poor vision I got from it the last year) or simply because the lens is a bad match, I don’t know. I am just trying to live with it mostly.
I am now going to try and seek a referral to Moorfields, in the hopes that their experience may yield some results.
Until the next update (I’ll try not to leave it a year next time!)
