I had a cornea transplant in September 2011. The quality of vision in my eye is now very poor with stigmatism and very light sensitive. I can not really use the eye. It does not seem to have improved over last 4 months. My surgeon says this is normal as it heals. Looking for other opinions and experiences.
Is this common? Is it normal for vision be worse than before?
Will vision improve over time? What is typical timeframe for recovery?
WIll vision improve when stitches are eventually removed?
