Jan 21, 2012 · Anyone here have Fuch's Dystrophy? in Eye Conditions

I would certainly see another certified ophthalmologist. One should be able to see if you had a botched up job of cataract surgery. (or maybe not botched, but some other problem.) Just tell them you are not happy with the results of your surgery, and see what they say. They should be able to tell if you have FD without your even saying anything about it before hand. If they don’t catch it in the exam, then tell them what you have been told and you are concerned about it. You certainly have a right to know the truth about your own condition and need to know more information about the progress of the disease, and the options. Ask around about how to find a reputable ophthalmologist, or depending on where you live there are web sites you can go to to find the best. We hope for the best. Keep us informed as to what you find out. Betty J

I speak from experience. If everyone lived their lives by Bible principles it would be a much happier world, and have much happier marriages and families. Marriage mates do not stop and think about what effect their actions have on their family, friends, and society as a whole, and the unhappiness and confusion it brings on the children. Unfaithfulness, hardly ever can be kept a secret forever. Eventually they are found out. How much better to follow the straight and narrow path, than to enter the wide and spacious highway that leads off to destruction!! Too bad most people think they have the intelligence to chose for themselves what is right and wrong. Adam and Eve being created perfect must have been far greater intelligent than we are at this point in time, and look how they chose for themselves! Big mistake, only our creator has that right. Thanks for speaking truth.

Hi, Betttyann, my name is Betty Jane. I too have FD. Your symptoms are much like my own. One eye is more involved than the other. I am 82 now, but was diagnosed probable about 10 years ago by an Optometrist, (I have been near sighed for since I can remember, so needed a new prescription) .He didn’t put a name to it at the time but simply said I had a condition that eventually I would go blind from. Then added that probably I wouldn’t live that long anyway as it was progressing quite slow. About 6 years ago I had cataract surgery on both eyes, by one of the best ophthalmologists in Spokane. He finely put a NAME to the disease, but I still did not know much about it until I found Mayo Clinics site. No one that I know of in my family has had it. No one has gone blind even. So I have no idea where it came from. I no doubt will have the transplant procedure at some point, but it is still progressing quite slow at this point, so I may indeed not outlive it. The Muro drops help my eyes feel more comfortable so have been using them. Hope this helps some how. Betty J
