Drs. Opinion (Dr. Garth Stephans)

Hopes I can see well enough to drive in the future.

Says my healing is taking longer than normal, but progressing slowly.

 

Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 6 years ago.

There can be many reasons for blurring of vision after corneal transplantation like corneal edema, secondary glaucoma(raised eye pressure), cataract, rejection of the corneal graft etc. I am not sure which amongst these is the reason for blurring of vision as I have not seen you. You may discuss it with the treating ophthalmologist. However, your doctor could be right. In many cases, healing may take longer than normal and you may eventually get substantial vision. You may see another cornea specialist for a second opinion. Thanks and best wishes.
