I have a corneal infection: is it bad?

Cornea infection (keratitis, corneal ulcer) often comes from an improper use of contact lenses and requires great attention.

If not treated immediately, it can result in corneal scars that limit vision.

When patients have red eyes and wear contact lenses, it is necessary to suppose the existence of a corneal infection, and therefore stop using contact lenses and ask an ophthalmologist.

In case of corneal scars, it can be treated with a laser technique known as PTK; if the cornea is too damaged, a transplant could be the solution.

Votazione: Eccellente
In 2005, after a number of visits and exams, I was diagnosed with Cornea Guttata Corneal Dystrophy and, all doctors told me that the corneal endothelial cells were disappearing and was going to become blind.

I looked ... Keep on reading this reviewfor second opinions in Sardinia, Italy and Spain, but the answer was always the same. One day my husband yelled at me “don’t give up and search the internet”. I went to my computer and searched: "Best Doctors for corneal dystrophy". I found Dr. Badalà and I decided to book a visit on March 10th, 2015.

I got to know Dr. Badalà in person: he reassured me and, with patience and simple words, explained a new technique of corneal transplant called DMEK.
He described the procedure step by step and told me I would have not become blind.
I did not know whether to cry or smile!

I underwent DMEK surgery on May 14, 2015. One month after surgery I could see colors clearly as I have not seen in years, since then at every follow-up (the last on January 26th, 2016) I keep receiving just good news.

I sincerely thank Dr. Badalà, for giving me hope and, most importantly, my sight back.
