Welcome to the forum! You have every reason to be hopeful at least for your left eye, not sure what the lens will do for you right eye. Will of course help with the dryness but I don't know about the focus issues.
I don't know what all you have read about the Scleral lens or about my eye & lens issues so I will recap a bit. I had my surgery in 1992 at the age of 36, so have been at this a long time as well. I was to the point where I wasn't sure if I could keep my job much longer because of the pain in my eye from the dryness, the bright computer screens and sunlight were getting really hard to cope with, not to mention the constant use of the eye ointment.
I don't actually have a Scleral lens, my lens is a gas permeable lens which is like the Scleral but smaller. My lens cost me $250 and I was fitted for it the first day I saw the eye doctor. She tried a couple of other lens sizes on me just to see what worked best but I always ended up with the first one she tried on me. I had a corneal ulcer a few months after I got the lens and couldn't use the lens for about a month while it healed. I wanted the lens back so badly, it really made me appreciate the lens even more. A couple of months after that my lens broke in half and I got another one, took a couple of days to get use to it but all is good. I still use eye ointment during the day but very little compared to before I had the lens and even less then when I first started using the lens. Perhaps one day I will do as Sara Lynn does and not use ointment during the day at all. We are all different and have to find what works best for us.
I could write paragraphs on how much this lens has changed my life, from saving me thousands of dollars a year to improving my attitude and out look for the future, it was really getting hard to be happy!
Please feel free to ask questions and post about your progress with getting the lens. It makes me sad to think there are so many people out there that could be helped by this lens and they like I was a year ago had no idea it existed. We will keep posting things now and then about the lens so that new posters like you will hopefully run across the info. so they too can get a lens. Also my eye doctor asked me to go back to my old eye doctor to let him see how great my eye is doing so he will help spread the word to his patients and other eye doctors.
Good luck tomorrow, look forward to hearing about your appointment Jill Marie
