Sales Assistant Matthew Dempsey talks about his successful treatment for keratoconus using collagen cross linking at Advanced Vision Care in Harley Street:
"I first found out I have keratoconus when I was 16 years old. At that time there was no real procedure to help with my condition. I first heard about crosslinking when I was 26 years old and enquired about it with AVC. Initially I was concerned about how it would affect my vision but I needn’t worry. The procedure wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be and all went well. The discomfort after surgery only last about 4-5 hours. Before seeing AVC I was sent to Swindon eye hospital as my opticians couldn’t help me anymore.
Now I can see fine without the need for any glasses at all! For anyone considering crosslinking I say just go for it!"
