how long does one need to use muro 128 eye drops to clear upn edema in the eye?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

It depends upon the underlying pathology that is causing your cornea to swell. If the pathology is self limited then you can stop the drop when things get better. If the swelling is due to something like Fuchs dystrophy you may have to use the drops forever -- or until you get new endothelial cells from DSEK surgery or a corneal transplant.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

I noticed your feedback and comments.

It sounds like your endothelial cells are not doing so good from all your surgery. They may recover. How long will that take? No way to tell. An endothelial cell count could give you some idea.....

You very well need to have surgery to replace your damaged endothelial cells.
