    Hi usman

    Cant tell from the photo, is your sight bad and is it one or both eyes, you really have to go to an optician and they will tell you if you have cataracts.

    I had cataracts in both eyes and it was the optician that told me, I think you may be in USA, so its different here in the UK, the optician referred me to the Doctor who then referred me to the hospital, then you have to wait for a few months to get the operation.  Again let us all know whats happening then there will be a better idea of whats going on and its good to hear the result

    Regards Agnes

    Are you in the UK?  You should go to an Optician [Optometrist] and have your eyes tested, the Optician will examine your eyes & tell you if you have anything wrong with them.

    The very poor quality image is that of an eye that has previously undergone a full thickness corneal transplant.

    If this was indeed your eye you would know that! 

    In any event any patient with an eye problem is best to consult an ophthalmologist or optician for an eye examination.

    Yes, I had a corneal transplant last year.

    Today, I went to a doctor. He said that the cornea is showing rejection signs. He gave me some eye drops and asked to come back next week.

      Hi usman

      Thats good that you are getting attention and that you are letting us all know how you are.  I think we will all agree that having anything wrong with your eyes is probably one of the worst thing that can happen to anyone.  I hope you are going to be OK, please let us know how your get on when you next go for treatment and the result of course

      Kindest wishes, Agnes

      Thanks a lot for your kind concern smile

      As I have mentioned earlier that three days ago I went to a cornea specialist. He prescribed me "PredForte" eye drops and asked me to use every after two hours. In these three days, although I am not feeling any visiable difference but hoping for best in next few days.

      My next appointment is on Friday, 16th December. Lets see what happens till then...
