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.
Gianna Lo Castro, Siracusa (Lentini)Votazione: EccellenteA 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... Keep on reading this review 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!
