“…A few months ago I was a bit frustrated with my less advanced eye. I had a Rose K lens in my worst eye and a very comfortable standard RPG in my better eye. Even though I came very close to 20-20 in my doctor’s office, I found that in daylight and at distances beyond 10 or 15 feet, my vision was much worse in my “good” eye. My doctor was hesitant to try a different lens because the fit was so good and my acuity tested so well in his office, but he agreed to go ahead and try a Rose K instead of the standard RGP.
I just got the Rose K last week and the improvement in my distance vision has been dramatic. I am still about 20-20 in his office, but my ability to see at a distance in daylight has not been this good in years. The comfort is quite good with both lenses and my acuity is great. For anyone considering Rose K, I can attest to the fact that in my situation, it definitely made a huge difference compared to a standard RGP lens. Most importantly, with my contacts I am able to engage in a number of activities that I couldn’t even consider with my glasses. Thank you Dr. S. for suggesting a Rose K to me a while back – your advice was right on!.....”
