Who's had it, how did it work out for you, were there complications?

I've had this condition for a few years, my two previous opthalmologists said nothing about correcting this condition.

I went to an optometrist who gave me an exam and told me about a local guy who does this. Fuchs' doesn't get better, I'm interested. I know all surgeries has risks and possible complications. Thanks for any input.

Hmm. Not a lot of Fuchs' out there. Another item, the doc said he'd like to do the cataract surgery on my other eye at the same time this is done. I thought wow that's a lot of surgery in one day. OTOH it's one and done. As long as there are no complications. I guess there are eyesight discussion boards out there somewhere, I'll go fish.

I will need a bilateral corneal transplant in a few years. People with Fuch's should not get LASIK as it weakens the cornea. Had I known I would develop it, I would not have had the procedure.

Thanks, orbiter, I'll do that. I'm glad you chimed in, it was looking like Fuchs' was a pretty fuchst topic.
