    Dear colleague,
    I am part of the Vision and lasers centre of Namur, Belgium
    I have a nearsighted-3, 28-year-old patient regularly treated for rheumatoid arthritis.
    Never had a problem ophthalmologist. Very asking.
    Can you inform me: What are the risks, what pathophysiology??? PRK/Femto/nothing? Prefer PRK.
    Can you help me quickly,? Write to me where to find the info?
    Operation (or not) beginning of July,
    Big THANK you
    James Pacco

  2. Dr. Damien Gatinel says:

    Rheumatoid arthritis is not a contraindication to refractive surgery when it is isolated and does not a dry eye. If the patient prefers the PKR, it is quite possible to achieve it in my view, if stock pre classic refractive surgery is in favour of course.

    Good evening, I have a keratoconus Since the age of 18ans, I am currently 21 years old and I followed the fifteen-twenty since July 2018, of the first appointment I was offered the cross-linking. On the phone at the Rothschild Foundation I am denied the appointment on the grounds that I do not have a letter from my ophthalmologist. So I know if it is possible to make an appointment for a follow up of Kératocone.
    In advance thank you

  7. Dr. Damien Gatinel says:

    Write to gatinel@gmail.com With the "Avis keratoconus" email motif and we will do the necessary for a quick appointment.

    Good evening Dr. Ganeshan,
    First Happy New Year!

    Initially I went to your website to know more about the laser surgery as I intended to have a laser surgery correct my myopia and astigamstim (Asian, 32y,-1.75 (-0.75),-1.75 (-1.25)), then I discovered about your article on the linkage between keratoconus and eye Rubbing.

    I realized immediately that I'm very guilty of having this bad habit too. I was systematically pressing my eyes when I was at 20s because I thought my eyes were "popping out". I also do not wear glasses in a systematic way (<1h per day) until very recently when I frequently experience eyestrain. per="" day)="" until="" very="" recently="" when="" i="" frequently="" experience="">

    How can we separate the keratoconus from normal Astigamstim? Will I have Keratoconus for sure, since I'm sure that I rub my eye frequently? I had ophthalmologist in 2018 but no topography tested was mentioned or required.
    In the presence of keratoconus, the LASIK is not eligible but how about smile?
    Do you have any good colleague/hospital in Belgium that you can recommend?

    Although I wish I had read your article about eye rubbing 20 years earlier, I m still grateful for your effort of sharing this so valuable information.

    Many thanks
