    You indicated you had three corneal transplants. Why three? Did one
    fail? Where they in both eyes? Over what period of time? How long was
    the healing time? Was it painful? Do you need glasses or contact
    lenses to see before and after? Had you become contact lens ntolerant?
    My brother is a KC patient who is increasingly becoming contact lens
    intolerant. He cannot wear rgp's and is struggling with softperms. His
    doctor has recommened a corneal transplant. His insurance is through
    Kaiser in CA. Any advice for him? I am looking at options and would be
    interested in learning more about your experience. You can email me at
    .
