White spots on cornea and inflammation-6 months and counting
The Dr. keeps removing white spots from my cornea.  He is not sure what they are and he says my cornea is shot and will need a transplant.  However, he would like to see the inflammation go down and at least get me "comfortable."  I have lots of eye pain and "grittiness," how long is it necessary to wait for a transplant and what are the white sports.  I'm miserable and cannot see out of my right eye.

the white spot are "infiltrates"...collections of white blood cells.  the reaction to a serious corneal problem.  they are definitely the cause of your "gritty" feeling.

you cannot have a transplant during active infection or inflammation.  so you'll have to wait until that eye "settles down".  i have no idea how long it will be.  possibly never, depending on what caused your inflammation.
