No SimLC is a different procedure to Keraflex.
I hope that eventually I will get a lens to stablise in my eye and get ok vision from it. One thing for certain is that the vision will never be as good as it was prior to the procedure.
If I can't get a lens then the only other option would be a corneal graft but this would absolutely be a last ditch option. I could get cross linking done again but I don't think it would really help.
Can I ask why you had SimLC? How was your vision prior to the treatment? Did you ever try lens prior to it?
Having gone on the road I'm on I feel that a lot of people tend to get cross linking/SimLC/Keraflex without proper knowledge of the actual procedure.
In my opinion the best option at present is to stick with lens if you can. As time progresses the treatments available will also improve and there will be further information available on them. Ok the Keratoconus may progress as well but I think the wait and see option is the best approach.
I have Keratoconus in both eyes but under no circumstances would I consider having SimLC on my right eye at present (my right eye isn't as far progressed therefore I don't need Keraflex at present).
