If you've been told you have Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy you're probably having a pretty hard time getting people to understand.   Most people don't believe that you have an eye problem, because your eyes look just like everyone else's.  They just can't understand why you would have a problem seeing one thing and not have a problem seeing something else.  Besides, who's ever heard of Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy????

 
Then there's the panic factor.  I think just about everyone wonders the same thing when they're told they have this eye disease.... "What HAPPENS to people with this eye disease?  Could I actually go BLIND with it?????"
                                           
We know what it's like.  We know the frustrations of trying to get people to understand, when you yourself don't even understand it!  We know the fear of the future, and wondering what's going to happen if we can't see.  We know because we've lived through it too.  

If you want to get information about this eye disease, tips on how to cope with it, methods of controlling or curing it,  and understanding from people who have gone through it themselves, you've found the right place!  Whether it be Endothelium Edema, Guttata, Cornea Transplants, Cataracts,headlight glare, or just not being able to identify people when they're standing in front of light, we understand just where you're at!  We understand because we live with it too and have FOUND the answers you're looking for, and now YOU can find them, too!!!  The best place to find answers about this eye disease is with people who know it best of all.... others who not only have it, but have found answers.

Sometimes our Fuchs' gives us nighttime "Starbursts"...

 

 

....Sometimes our Fuchs' Dystrophy creates a nighttime "Glare"....

 

.... and then there are times when our Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy makes driving at night impossible! 


We have accumulated a lot of information on the symptoms and treatments for Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy, as well as tips for coping with it, right on our site. Also on our site we have links to photos of what your eye dr is seeing when he's looking into your eyes and diagnosing Fuchs' Dystrophy as well as many other links such as devices you can use to help see better, and pictures of what actually is happening during a cornea transplant, among many other things of interest to people with this eye disease.  We also want to give you the opportunity to meet others with the same eye disease as YOU have, and get fast, personalized answers to questions and concerns about the disease that you have. We have people who are in all stages of the disease. By a multitude of personal experiences (both good and bad), talking with eye professionals, and much research, we have compiled resource information and tips about the disease. We aren't medical doctors, so anything you learn in this site is not medical advice, but information for you to ask your trusted eye care professional about before doing it.

What better place to start your quest for information than with people who have been through that path themselves and have found answers?  If you are a Christian why not join our FREE Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy support group? It's the ONLY one with not only "been there, done that" information, but also Christian support!!
