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
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... 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!
