2002 I was diagnosed with Krukenberg's Spindle. I had never heard
of it before, so I tried to find out exactly what it was on the
internet. Initially, all I could find were veterinarians case notes,
about a cat that had the same thing. Now there is more information
available online, but the sites seem a little cold and impersonal,
written by professionals for professionals.
am not a medical professional, I have had no medical training, but
here on these pages I am going to try to explain the following:
you have been diagnosed with Krukenberg's Spindle, or Pigment Dispersion
Syndrome, please share your experiences on here - remember, a problem
shared is a problem halved! It could mean that we inadvertently
help by finding a common denominator that we all share, something
that no-one would have dreamed could have had a connection! If you
are an opthalmologist, any help you can provide will be gratefully
accepted - there are many questions that at present we have no answers
If you have had treatment for PDS, including laser treatment, eye
drops, etc., your input would be useful for others that are about
to start treatment, to allow them to be informed about what's involved
and what they can expect from the treatment. Please post your experiences
on the message board.
the links page you will find links to eye
sites online that have information or images about these eye conditions.
The message board has postings
from people around the world. If you are able to answer any of the
questions asked on there, we would be very grateful. My thanks go
to Dave Bennett for his help and time on the message board answering
queries. Much appreciated, Dave, by us all. Postings from September
1st 2004 to November 2006 can now be viewed by clicking on the Archived
Messages link. About me is really
my case notes, I suppose, which contains a link to the images
page (Updated) with images of my eyes
taken by an opthalmic photographer and an optician. The favourite
links page is pure indulgence on my part, and has nothing to
do with eye conditions!
stats for this site show that there have been visitors from all
around the world - welcome to you all. If you have been diagnosed
with Krukenberg's spindle or pigment dispersion syndrome, please
get in touch, so that we can develop a support group/compare notes
on treatment etc.
you have any suggestions for the site or would like to submit your
site to add to either of the links pages, please e-mail.
Also, let me know if you've liked the site, found it easy to read,
you for visiting this site... I hope it helps!
site is currently having a 'facelift'... if you encounter any problems,
please email and let me know.
