Fuch

I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes (6/11/09 and 7/9/09) and i have Fuch also. Prior to the surgery, at an office visit, the thickness was measured at 693 in the left eye and 694 in the right eye. When I went in at each surgery the thickness was measured at 994 each time. The nurses were alarmed but the doctor wasn’t worried. I have had floaters before but now they are worse. My vision is 20/30 and I can see through the floaters pretty well for distance. Close up it is bad. I have so many readers glasses now, trying to find the right strength. Do I have any reason to be concerned.

That number 994 is wrong. A cornea that thick would be grossly swollen and cloudy.  And is Fuchs corneal dystrophy.
