Don't give up! Don't rush to a transplant. There is no one contact\scleral lens that is great for everyone. Find a keratoconus specialist who can provide great vision. DON'T GIVE UP!

Among the many eye problems that can make ones life difficult #keratoconus is certainly one of them Requires great patience, NO eye-rubbing, and an experienced clinician to care for you for 3 reasons: 1- to maximize your visual function with glasses and or contact lenses 2- apply CXL when and if needed so to avoid a transplant 3- screen family members (especially teens) for #keratoconus expression and possibly offering #2 and last remember that life’s difficulties only make us stronger and more compassionate: Happy New Year!

Dear [Keratoconus] Fighter, I want you to know, you are not alone. I struggled for years with keratoconus but the last two years saw my sight decline. All of sudden I was unable to drive myself around, my family did the driving for me. I struggled for two years, attempting to find the perfect fitting lense. I was referred to alot of people but never got a perfect fitting lenses. Everytime I got discouraged and after every failed trial lenses I cried. I had to stop my studies and adjust my life. It was hard but my family would never let me give up so I kept fighting until I got a perfect lenses two months back. I know its long message but all I want to tell you is do not give up, keep fighting. Keep telling yourself ..... I am not keratoconus💪

You are only beaten when lay down. Blindness is not a disability it’s just something else to get over. There are blind musicians, photographers and painters.
