How to Address Fuch’s Dystrophy After Cataract Surgery?
July 29, 2010
I wrote you awhile back and asked you about Fuchs Dystrophy and cataract surgery. I had my surgery 2 months ago and my vision is only 20/70. I don’t think at this point it will get any better, but my eye surgeon said my eye is not bad enough for a corneal transplant. Do you think glasses will help my vision at this point or not? I always like to find out why things happen and I know sometimes there are no answers. However, do you feel that my cornea swelled after surgery and this is what caused my blurry vison? I felt a pop during surgery and I remember blinking and the dr. said NOT to blink – but it was hard not to as I felt a sort of stabbing in my eye. After the surgery, I had terrific pain in my eye and a terrible headache. My eye was quite sore for days. I always feel if my eye was covered, it would be easier for me – but I realize I can’t go through life with a patch over my eye either. However, having one bad eye throws you off balance at times and I find myself tripping a lot. Thank you so much for any advice you have for me. By the way, I am 71 yrs. old.
