This is a group of people who volunteer to help those with Corneal Dystrophy's. We cover the world, 170 countries have been heard from. Join our Fuch's Friends Community for support, information and help. AND as with a re a charitable organization we always ask for donations to help others. Should you have a charitable mind set and wish information, a DVD of our 2011 Symposium with the top Cornea Surgeons speaking is available with a donation of 75.00 PLEASE HELP
