Make an appointment Gianna Lo Castro, Siracusa (Lentini) Votazione: Eccellente Home / Testimonianze / Gianna Lo Castro Problem: Cornea guttata, Fuchs Endothelial Distrophy, Corneal edema, Bullous KeratopathySolution: DMEK Corneal Endothelium Transplant 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!
