Glop on my Scleral Lenses
I’m writing this in the hope that I can find a solution to the glop that appears on my lenses after I’ve worn them for 4-6 hours.
The photo shows some of the problem. I couldn’t get a better image as trying to take a shot of the lens with limited vision whist holding a iPhone in one hand is no easy task! Previous attempts showed much more glop, but the image quality was far to poor to use.
The glop is white and slightly sticky to the touch. It causes me real problems with reading print unless it is both enlarged and bold. Trying to read grey print, for example, is impossible. The glop does really affect any close work I’m trying to do. It makes anything I’m reading blurred, as though I’m looking through a cloud.
Interestingly, it doesn’t affect my distance vision so much. So watching TV isn’t too much of a problem.
I’ve tried taking my lens out (it mainly affects my left eye – the one I had a partial re-graft on last year) cleaning it with Oté Clean 40, and reinserting the lens. But, it seems that once my eye has started to produce this glop it continues to do so and with an hour my close vision is deteriorating again!
Very annoying and leaving me with a limited window in which to use my iPad, do other close work or write this blog.
Any ideas as to why I get this glop and what I can do to prevent it are welcome.
I use a combination of Lens Plus and HYLO-care as my solutions.
