PMD and Keratoconus Archives


When I as at eye doctor last month being fitted yet again for a hard contact lens he showed me the topography of my eye. I was wondering how advanced the Keratoconus ( I actually have PMD or Pellucid Marginal Disease) was in my right eye. He showed me my left and pointed out the classic “kissing birds” image on the map of my moderately affected left eye.
He said with regular Keratoconus who see a more lazy 8 shape and with PMD “kissing birds” below is an example of MD so you can see what he meant. I have never heard it put that way and though it was neat way of looking at it.


This might be a good way to get a free pair of Synergeyes.

If you have Keratoconus consider this trial for contact lenses:

SynergEyes Clinical Study

SynergEyes, the industry leader in hybrid contact lens technology,
invites you to participate in a SynergEyes Keratoconus clinical study.

SynergEyes is designed to provide your eyes the crisp vision of a
rigid gas permeable (RGP) lens and the comfort of a soft lens. The
purpose of this study is to analyze new lens design configurations
that have been created for improved lens comfort and wearability. The
clinical study will take place at SynergEyes offices in Carlsbad,
California, to evaluate and dispense multiple lens designs, and allow
for various progress visits. Most visits will be about 1 hour long.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about keratoconus and
assist in the development of a new treatment option. If you would
like to participate or have any questions, please call the SynergEyes
study enrollment coordinator, Jessica Ackerman at 760-444-9629 to
schedule a screening evaluation. Enrollment is filling rapidly, and
study subjects will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you would like to participate, do not delay in contacting Jessica
to indicate your interest.

My Synergeyes Contact Lens

SynergEyes Lens

After bot of a mix-up I am going in tomorrow to try my first pair of Synergeyes lenses. There are a hybrid lens with a rigid gas permeable in centre and surrounded by a soft lens skirt. They are supposed to be very comfortable and my solution to the lens popping out issue I am having with my RGP lenses.
I have been waiting 2 months now to get pair that work.
I am also wondering if I have PMD, a variation on the mis-shapen cornea. I may have a pregnant belly cornea and not a boob-shaped cornea. Does it ever end?
