Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Is the degenerative tissue on the nose side running upto ornea? Are you referring to the pterygium? Could you send me a photo by attaching it to your next reply? Thanks.
This may or may not be related to the entry point that is made to enter the eye. However, the best thing is that DSEK is fine as your doctor said. This raised pimple may have resulted from scarring or fibrosis of the incision made during the surgery or may be unrelated to it. It is not going to cause much harm to the eye except some irritation. You can use a lubricating eye drop like Refresh Tears 3-4 times to reduce this irritation. It may go with time. You can discuss it with your ophthalmologist. Thanks and best wishes.
A photo would have been helpful. Since, it is not in the visual axis it is not likely to affect vision so DSEK should not be affected. Your ophthalmologist was probably initilally thinking it to be inflammatory and so he prescribed a steroid Lotemax but it did not resolve. It may or may not be degenerative. Degenerative does not mean that it is a cause of serious concern. My guess is that it is not likely to cause any harm except for some irritation in which case lubricating drops will help. It is very unlikely to affect DSEK. However, since I have not examined you this should be confirmed from the treating ophthalmologist. Thanks and best wishes.
