thiswearyhead asked: Hi! I saw that in 2012, you started wearing Kerasoft lenses. Can I ask if you still are wearing them and how they have been for you? I have fairly mild keratoconus and have been wearing glasses for several years now. I recently had corneal crosslinking done, and I would love to be able to wear soft contacts again. I'd love to hear a real person's experiences with the kerasoft lenses. Thanks so much!

(Answering this publicly in hopes of raising awareness about Keratoconus.)

Hi TWH,

It’s nice to hear from a fellow Keratoconic. We’re 2 in 4,000! Or 2 in 800. Or 2 in 1,000. It all depends on who’s counting, I guess. Haha!

Unfortunately for me, I have advanced KC and the Kerasoft lenses ended up gripping my corneas a little too tightly. The vision was great, but the tight fit quickly became uncomfortable and fairly irritating.

I’m now wearing the “Soft K Toric" lenses made by a company called Eni-Eye, and they’ve been incredible. After tolerating daily pain with RGP/hard lenses for years, I can’t tell you how happy I’ve been wearing these new lenses. And my vision has never been better: 20/20 in one eye, 20/15 in the other!

Both lens designs are very good at masking corneal irregularities. I’ve had both the C3-R and Intacs procedures done, and I was still able to achieve great vision with both Kerasoft and Soft K. Overall comfort was the main factor that determined which lenses I ultimately chose, and the Soft K lenses ended up being the winner for me.

However, if you have mild KC, Kerasoft might work well for you. It all comes down the specific shape of your corneas and the way your eyelids close around your eye. Your corneal specialist will definitely know which would be the better match for you.

Both Kerasoft and Soft K lenses can offer great, vibrant, comfortable vision, but they do still have the one flaw that all soft lenses share: they can dry out easily. Make sure to keep Refresh Plus vials on hand. :)

I really hope either the Kerasoft or Soft K lenses work for you. I know how frustrating it must be to deal with KC, and I’m honored to be a part of your support circle.

Best wishes,
Paul

it might be that it’s almost 2AM, but this made me laugh really damn hard. Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” without music and overdubbed imagined sound effects.

Big Bang Discovery Opens Doors to the “Multiverse”
Gravitational waves detected in the aftermath of the Big Bang suggest one universe just might not be enough.
Bored with your old dimensions—up and down, right and left, and back and forth? So tiresome. Take heart, folks. The latest news from Big Bang cosmologists offers us some relief from our humdrum four-dimensional universe.
Gravitational waves rippling through the aftermath of the cosmic fireball, physicists suggest, point to us inhabiting a multiverse, a universe filled with many universes.

This National Geographic piece is a perfect resource for anyone curious about the whole “cosmology/gravitational waves…thing”, otherwise known as “one of the most profound discoveries of human history.” I recommend journeying through the interactive infographic article all about the ‘Cosmic Dawn’, which explores science’s most provocative cosmological questions. It’s glorious.
