I went to the Keratoconus specialist to see what can be done about my right eye, The news is not good,
The optometrist said my right eye is so bad, I might need a cornea transplant. There are other options, but they are expensive, and not likely to be covered by insurance because they are experimental.
Worst case scenario, I’m going to have to pay $5,000 for each eye. The doctor is working with both our insurance, and a company he used to work for, to see how much of that they can take off, but I don’t know how much we will have to pay out of pocket.
For those who don’t know what Keratoconus is, it’s a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw.
I don;t know what;s going to happen in the future. I’m scared that I won’t be able to save up enough for the procedures. I’m scared my eyesight will get so bad, I won’t be able to do the things I love to do, such as drawing and writing.
I’m just… really, really worried.
The insurance will be calling me between tomorrow and Friday. I’m going to try to relax, and hope for the best. But, this will really put a damper on my mood for my birthday…
