I recently (about two weeks ago) underwent corneal transplant surgery for my right eye which has been affected by keratoconus for over 10 years. I have chosen to have this intervention done abroad and I reached Dr. Badala.
I was calm a few days before the surgery, but when the day came I got quite nervous, but I lost this feeling once the procedure began under local anesthesia. I couldn’t see or feel anything during surgery, which was my initial concern. I did feel some pain during the first night after the anesthetic started to wear off, but the next days I only felt a minor discomfort.
My vision was extremely poor before the transplant, I could barely count my fingers and did not see any letters on the vision chart.
The same day of surgery I could already see much better. Just one week after surgery my vision without glasses improved to 4/10.
I can say that Dr. Badala and his staff were very polite, patient, helpful and have a professional attitude. I am grateful for everything they have done! For me there was really nothing unsatisfying during this whole experience.
I wouldn’t have second thoughts to contact Dr. Badala in case of any other eye problem or intervention I would need.
