sck @ Shayabutter's contact lense "sucking on her eyeball"


Actually, my eye doctor back in Cali told me about a person who wore the extended wear contacts for two long(over a year) and never took them out... One day when they attempted taking them out, the contact lenses had vacuum sealed themselves to her cornea, and the cornea attachment had loosened because of it and her entire cornea came out with the contacts. I don't know if it was true, or if he told me that to frighten me into not wearing the extended wear too long.

Has anybody had that Lasix surgery?

I'm a fraidy cat on that one too. I keep thinking i'll be the one person to wind up on the news blinded by the surgery... Frown


I also heard a horror story about this. A young women I was sitting next to on a trans-Atlantic flight told me her father was blinded because he had the surgery when her little brother inadvertantly puched him in the eye and collapsed his cornea. It seems the cornea is structurally weakened and can collapse if any trauma occurs afterwards.
