    Recently i had acute hydrops, after which I began to wear RGPM lenses.

    The hydrops resolved fine, and wearing was comfortable for a few months,
    but recently I began to experience problems regarding the lens.

    I experience a burning sensation when reading books, focusing on smaller
    details, but is most severe while using the monitors. It doesnt make a
    difference if I use a CRT or LCD. Watching the TV from a distance is
    surprisingly without problems.
    Using the rewetting drops - alcon optifree and allergan refresh
    contacts, seems to alleviate the problem for a very brief period, but
    after prolonged wear, it does not seem to help at all.

    All suggestions are welcome.

    James,

    I had KC for 10 years before transplants. Now, 10 years later, I have KC
    again.
    I tried many types of lenses the first time and had problems like you
    describe.

    This time I was fitted with "piggyback" lenses. I wear 14 mm soft lenses
    then
    7 mm hard lenses on top of them. The materials from each lens has great
    oxygen permeability.

    This lens arrangement is MUCH more comfortable than the rigid lenses alone.

    My $0.02 worth...
