Well, to be fair, she did respond FIVE WEEKS LATER.
Fortunately, by then, my new GP, Dr. Waller, had helped me get a self-referral to Moorfields.
I was elated.
Still, five weeks later, when my optometrist finally called to say that the manufacturer of my scleral lenses would be in office to check the fitting personally, I agreed to attend. I wanted to hear what he had to say.
When I entered the office the scleral specialist was looking, disturbingly, at the pictures that I had sent five weeks earlier.
“This is extreme,” he said.
Then he went on to confirm that my scleral lenses had been fitted incorrectly. So, it was with sheer pleasure that I left the office, happy that my persistence had paid off and I would finally be seen by one of the top corneal experts in the country Dr Frank Larkin.
