The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation
October 1, 2010

when I was first diagnoised with fuchs corneal dystropy I was only told that I would go blind if I did not eventually have transplants. I was scared and felt very isolated as I didnt know of any one who had this problem. I attended my first fuchs friends gathering and saw a whole bunch of happy people who had transplants and they could SEE. It took away alot of my fear and as I attended more conferences I recieved alot of education and listened to some of the top specialists in the country. The corneal dystropy foundation is very important to all of us who participate and all those yet undiagnoised. sincerly Mary Oswald
