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.
