keratitis and catarat
Posted in the Ophthalmology Forum
#1 May 7, 2012
My 80-year old aunt in China has keratitis for a few years, and had been taking different ointments and eye drops for it. Her eyes were just getting worse.
Now she is visiting Taiwan. The ophthalmologists there say there is nothing they can do, and she needs to get a cornea transplant and a cataract surgery.
I thought, since she has infection in the eyes, doctors should try to control the infection, to preserve the little eye-sight she still has. Can her cornea be so bad that controlling the infection would be a waste of time?
