Does anyone know if 'Fuchs Dystrophy' is anything to do with the immune system and APS?
I went to have an eye test and was told that something at the back of my eye was coming apart! But the Optometrist seemed very casual about it all and said it was nothing to worry about.
I decided to pop back in after thinking about it and asked the receptionist about it she looked up my records and said that 'Fuchs Dystrophy' was written on my notes, so of course I came home and googled it!!!! Not good. I am waiting for a phone call tomorrow from the Optometrist so she can explain it all to me. I am already getting some of the symptoms but had not thought anything of it. I wake up in morning and my eyes are watery and sticky this goes on all morning they are also sore and blurry most of the day. I also get stabbing pains in them (all part of stage one of the condition). I have searched it on here and there is actually only one post so I am assuming that it is not part of APS. I had put alot of my symptoms down to dry eye as when I was diagnosed with APS I was told I did have dry eyes.
The final stage ends in blindness although it can take years for this to happen!!
