Continued generic tilex fresh shower-related eye trouble (?)

Discussion in 'Eye-Care' started by Dan Stromberg, Jul 8, 2005.

  1. On June 11th, I posted a message titled 'target "tilex" fresh shower
    clone in eye?'. I received a helpful response, but I now have more
    information about the situation that I was hoping I could get comments on.

    The 5 milky-white spots on my right cornea are still there (likely, but
    not necessary, due to exposure to a target brand generic form of "Tilex
    Fresh Shower"). My opthalmologist believes the spots may be looking
    better than they were on my first visit.

    My opthalmologist borrowed a cornea specialist during my most recent
    visit, and the cornea specialist believes that I have some damaged
    epithelial tissue on my cornea, and some new undamaged epithelial tissue
    has formed over the damaged tissue, preventing the damaged tissue from
    going away.

    The two of them decided that if I want to treat the situation (I can still
    see reasonably well with appropriate, but very different from before,
    correction), then I should either:

    1) Try a "bandage contact", which in this case means a very low-correction
    disposable, to cut costs

    and/or

    2) See a cornea specialist about getting the damaged epithelial tissue
    scraped away with a scalpel.

    I'm currently trying to "bandage contact" route.

    Do these approaches make sense to sci.med.vision net.wisdom? What is
    the purpose behind the "bandage contact" method?

    Thanks!
