My wife was diagnosed with Fuchs Corneal Surgery about 5 years ago and her Dr is now talking about Surgery a year from now ( now is 5/13 )
He specializes in Corneal Diseases at a Long Island NY Hospital and has indicated that big strides have been made recently in corneal surgeries- I don't know what surgeries or advances he is referring to but I have heard about full/partial transplants
I am not particularly helpful to my wife because I am wheelchair bound but I really want to get her the best medical care possible for her fuchs corneal dystrophy
Apparently ..the Dr is talking about just surgery in her one eye
What to look for or avoid during or in pre/post surgery ?
Suggestions as to how I can help/assist her and what are her best options ?
What should the Dr do or not do ?
I have even read about using hair blowers " lightly " to dry fluid in eyes and/or some people have said eye drops can help ?
Thanks- Help/Suggestions are appreciated

Probably a google search would tell you a lot. And there's a link just to the right of this paragraph to someone's sharing their experience. Probably most of us never have heard of this, so we've learned something. Good luck.
