Practical Tips

As patients having suffered or still suffering from Acanthamoeba Keratitis, we know what it means to go through it and all the emotions, roller coasters and lack of information and therefore we have gathered a list of practical information for you as a patient, supporting someone or your network understanding what you are going through.

Is important to join a support group as soon as you can you if you are a patient so you realise you are not alone and also ask your support group to join so they can understand better what you are going through and at the same time help in the best way.

IMPORTANT: Please always seek medical advice if you are in doubt or have questions of your contact lenses and / or condition.​

Keep your eyes and contact lenses happy – no water contact

The site is put together by ex-patients of AK, not medically trained in any way. We hope you will find this information helpful but please if in any doubt ALWAYS seek advice/treatment from an ophthalmologist / corneal specialist
