What a small world this is! I know Fuchs only affects 1-2% of the population, but I'm meeting LOTS of folks who have it. I was diagnosed in 1983 by 2 cornea specialists who told me I did not have to see a specialist until the disease progressed. Stupid me believed them, and continued seeing the optometrist. This year, I failed the vision exam and the optometrist told me to find a cornea specialist who could see me through to old age (I'll be 54 next month). I have an appt with a cornea specialist on March 5 and am expecting him to do a corneal thickness test, cell count, among other things. I have never had these tests done, but the Fuchs has progressed to the point that I'm in a constant 'fog' and the optometrist can no longer see through my cornea to determine if there are cataracts there, also. Cataract surgery would accelerate the Fuchs, so the cataract will need to be removed, then a full cornea transplant done. That doesn't exactly sound like fun, but neither does limited vision. I've just been biding my time and adjusting to my dimming eyesight. Color me stupid. Have you had anything done for your Fuchs? Is it giving you trouble? Do you have a family history of this eye disease? My aunt also had cornea disease, and someone I spoke to about the Pritchett family mentioned one of my ancestors going blind due to cornea disease. That's how I know it's on mother's side of the family, although she's been blessed with good vision.
