Unhappy detected with RCE 8 years ago

I was detected with RCE 8 years ago and still have intermittent erosions. I've had Muro Ointments, antibiotics, steroids, debridement several times and even PTK twice. I had PTK done in both eyes done at the same time in February 2011 and had the right eye done again in February 2012 and the left eye done in April of 2012. (I would have done them both on the same day again, but I couldn't because I had an erosion in my left eye in January of 2012.) My doctor recommended that I have PTK in each eye separately anyways.

After a couple days after the PTK surgery on my left eye, the doctor removed the bandage contact off my right eye. Two days later I had an erosion in my right eye. I'm so frustrated.

There aren't any more treatments or procedures available. I was hoping PTK would work. I haven't had an erosion again in my left eye since the PTK, so I'm praying that it worked on my left eye...but only time will tell.

I've had erosions in my left eye just yesterday, but luckily pain medicine removes the pain. But, I don't like living like this....not knowing when the next erosion will come. I've had to miss a lot of work due to these eye problems.....sometimes I just work through the pain with pain meds.....

Does anyone know of any other new treatments? Nothing has worked for me yet.
