Is DSEK Effective for Fuchs Dystrophy?

Posted By Patient Letter to the Editor On September 13, 2009 @ 11:27 pm In Cornea,Patient Questions | Comments Disabled

When is the time right for DSEK for Fuchs? Corneas are 700 mics bilat; cell count 300 in good eye, not measurable in bad eye. Best corrected vision is 20/50 in bad; 20/40 bilateral. I’m 52 and this came as quite a surprise though I’ve suffered bad vision for years without knowing why. Doc mentioned DSEK as my only option though said I could try the drops and ointment (haven’t worked so far, 4 weeks in). And, how much can I expect my vision to improve after DSEK?  I need cataract surg at same time as DSEK for developing cataracts.
