HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A CORNEAL CONDITION CALLED FUCHS DYSTROPHY?
Submitted by Dr. Vincent Basilice on January 23, 2014
Fuchs Dystrophy is a familial eye condition which can lead to chronic swelling or edema of the cornea particularly after cataract surgery. The fellowship trained eye surgeons at The Ophthalmic Center can evaluate this condition and treat appropriately both before and after surgery. Using the most advanced diagnostic and surgical techniques, Fuchs Dystrophy can be treated with DSEK (Descemets’ stripping endothelial keratoplasty) to improve vision. If you, a family member, or friend, suffer from Fuchs Dystrophy or corneal edema please contact the eye doctors at The Ophthalmic Center located in East Setauket, Long Island, for an evaluation to see if you are a candidate for this advanced surgical procedure. For more information please contact The Ophthalmic Center serving Suffolk County Long Island.
