Excited about the thought of being able to hinder the progression of my disease, I started vigorously researching cross-linking. But right around that same time, I noticed that I increased the zoom on the computer when I was working. I thought my vision was the same, but somehow it felt "uncomfortable".
I didn’t mention this to many people because after having been through so much personal trauma, including unemployment, the last thing I wanted to do was infer that I was having difficulties with my vison that would impact my job. But when I decided to move to the UK in the summer of 2014, my ophthalmologist in the Cayman Islands informed me that I could also seek cross-linking treatment there.
