I had cataract surgery in april 2018. since have had blurred vision. Dr. says corneal edema. need corneal transplant. from complications of surgery. Is this Drs. fault? drops dont work .What if i dont get transplant? will i lose my vision in that eye? Dr. says no.
There is a risk of corneal edema after cataract surgery. It is impossible to have a 100% success rate for any operation. If the corneal edema is too long and drugs are not effective, it is best to perform a corneal transplant.
I have fuchs dystrophy and i am having catatct surgery. Is that a bad idea?
It depends, listen to you Dr. since he's going to evaluate your condition.
I had cataract surgery with fuchs dystrophy. Vision was blurry, worse than before the surgery. After many months of treatment with steroid drops and sodium chloride solution, there was no improvement. Finally went with cornea transplant which ultimately cleared everything up and vision in that eye is now better than before the cataract surgery.
