I was diagnosed with Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy 20 years ago. For a long time I was not able to find much information regarding this illness. The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation website solved that problem. The site and the support group provide a wealth of information. Suggested questions for your doctor and explainations of the testing and disease progression are especially helpful. I was able to attend one of the bi-annual seminars where experts present the latest findings and answer questions. Eventually I made a decision to have cornea transplants in both eye and am now Fuchs' free, thanks in no small part to the Corneal Dystrophy Foundation.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

dealing with the disease over the last 5 years and coming to the decision in 2009 to undergo cornea transplants.

This charitable organization helped save my vision. I was suffering from seriously declining vision and, at the age of sixty with a very demanding job, I did not know what to do when I was diagnosed with Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy. Even though I lived in Manhattan and had access to the best eye doctors, few eye doctors I consulted were knowledgable about this disease which can be corrected by a corneal transplant. I found Fuchs Friends when searching the Internet for information about the disease. Because of the helpful information posted by the group I found an excellent surgeon and today my vision is 20/20 corrected. I can navigate the world, read, and use the computer without glasses. The Board of Directors are hands on and devoted a great deal of time to the Foundation. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this organization.

The Great!
