In Fuchs dystrophy, will contact lenses make symptoms worse because the cornea is getting less oxygen. I really don't want to give up wearing contacts?

In Fuchs dystrophy, will contact lenses make symptoms worse because the cornea is getting less oxygen. I really don't want to give up wearing contacts?

Need to talk to eye: Doctor. I would ask that to your opthalmologist. I feel that there is more a chance of you going blind wearing contacts. The oxygen is important and the new contacts are gas-permeable. But....... I would not take the chance of infection or keratitis and go blind.
Best wishes. ...Read more

Doctor,can the heat inside car left in sun, cause cornea burn?if so what symptoms the heat might cause to the eye ? thank you

NO: If you can in hot car parked in the sun. Roll down all windows and put the AC on outside air. Just about the only problem would be sweating profusely and getting sweat into your eyes, which will cause burning and watering. Try not to rub your eyes with dirty hands. Use a clean tissue. In case of burning and tearing get any brand of artificial tears and instill in several times. ...Read more
