The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation
May 22, 2010

While I knew that I had Fuchs Dystrophy in both eyes since I could remember, no eye doctor worried about it. They would say yet you got it, no better, no worse. Well as everyone knows Fuch is temperamental. Last year my eyes really started bothering me. My doctor wouldn't do anything, so I changed doctors. The next one didn't help either. I went back the original dr. that had told me I had Fuch. He did cataract surgery on both eyes. All was well, and then the left eye started bothering me. He said that it was scar tissue and that he would only do something if I was almost blind. This is when I sought out and found the Corneal Dystrophy Foundation. What a Godsend. I found out everything I needed to know. I also made some good friends. I found a corneal specialist on the approved list, went to him and now I am Fuch free after have DSEAK in both eyes. This doctor didn't hesitate. He said he likes to take care of Fuch before it gets too bad.
