My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
Before I found the Corneal Dystrophy Foundation, I was totally in the wilderness. Over the years, several ophthalmology professionals had mentioned that I had Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy but all dismissed it as nothing to worry about. When I first heard the word "transplant" I became very alarmed. Fortunately, I found CDF where reliable information was available and joined the support group they sponsor, Fuchs' Friends. I also attended the CDF symposium at Duke University where there was opportunity to hear from cornea specialists with experience and time to interact with them personally. With the knowledge gained from the support group and the symposium, I was very comfortable going forward recently with two partial corneal transplants. The Foundation provides a valuable service to those who have this disease because it if so difficult to find reliable information and to locate a cornea specialist with expertise in treating Fuchs'. I am greatly appreciate of all who contribute their time to help others.
