What are the signs or symptoms of a detached cornea? Does it always affect vision or pain? Any change to the way the eye looks? 1 of my eyes looks odd

?: You cannot have a detached cornea. If you have had, what is called, a lamellar corneal transplant, you could have a detachment of the tissue inside the eye. If you have not had prior corneal surgery, then what you suggest is not possible. See an ophthalmologist for an exam if your eye "looks odd". ...Read more

Im looking for information on detached cornea because mine was just removed yesterday due to being detached. But this material says it cannot happen?!

Im looking for information on detached cornea because mine was just removed yesterday due to being detached. But this material says it cannot happen?!

Not likely: The cornea is the transparent window at the front of the eye and does not spontaneously detach. Rarely a portion of the cornea can detach if you have had previous LASIK surgery. Are you confusing this with retinal or vitreous detachments, which can occur sometimes with cause and sometimes spontaneously? Could you have had interior corneal surgery (DSAEK) from your ophthalmologist? ...Read more

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

An optometrist who had very dry fingers was rough with my eyes. What are symptoms of scratches to cornea/conjuntiva/sclera etc that I can monitor?

Foreign sensation : If your cornea or conjunctiva was scratched during examination, you would have moderately severe pain, tearing, photophobia, inability to fully open eyelid, and ocular redness. Your vision could be very blurry too, depending what part was scratched. A discharge may also result. If these symptoms are absent, but you have some irritation, try using preservative free artificial tears every 1-2 hours. ...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

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
