La recensione rilasciata da Gianna Lo Castro sull'Intervento di DMEK Corneal Endothelium Transplant per Diseases Of Cornea, Cornea Guttata, Fuchs Endothelial Distrophy, Corneal Edema e Bullous Keratopathy eseguito dal dott. Badalà

    A few years ago I discovered I had a quite rare disease called “Fuchs’ dystrophy,” which affects the cornea.

    I had troubles driving and was always seeing through the fog. The fog was getting worse and worse, making it difficult to distinguish different objects. I had great difficulty, even to watch TV.

    I was considering myself on the way to blindness and was wondering how could I deal with my new “low vision status”.  I did not give up and started looking around!

    I finally found a specialist using cutting edge technology: Dr Badala. He explained me my condition and reassured me! Then he proposed a new corneal endothelium transplant called  DMEK. I finally decided and underwent surgery.

    I faced some difficulties, like lying down supine for about 48 hours, but it was worth it! Now my low vision is just a memory!

    I started to see immediately: everything was clear! I could even make out the pictures on TV! Coming back home, I saw my cat with its true colors in contrast: black and white, rather than an indefinite gray as before surgery !! So? !! … Thanks a lot  Dr. Badalà!
