What is the vision in your eyes, if you know it? Thanks.
Medical management of this condition involves hypertonic saline drops like Muro and therapeutic soft contact lens. A hairdryer can be used to dehydrate the cornea. Surgical management has changed a little as DSEK in place of Penetrating Keratoplasty is becoming commoner. Since, you're 48 years of age there could be other problems like developing cataract which can cause problems in night driving. You should see an ophthalmologist again. Thanks and best wishes.
Well, anything can happen in the next 3-5 years but in my opinion any miracle in the medical management is not imminent. Since, your doctor advised for corneal transplantation you must be having advanced fuch's dydtrophy. Though the vision you have quoted is not that bad but can not be relid upon as you are not sure about it. In my opinion you should see a cornea specialist. It is also possible that developing cataract may also be contributing to your problems. Thanks and best wishes.
