View Full Version : PLEASE if anyone know Fuchs

My mother has just found out that she has the rare eye disease Fuch's Dystrophy. It is supposed to be painful and is quite rare. I completely understand getting upset and freaking out about it. It is hereditary and is seen more in women, so I am scared, not just for her but me too.

We just got into an argument about it and nothing says that it *is* going to cause blindness. I am not sure if she is adding stress to herself or if she is right. Does anyone know that there is no doubt that she *will* go blind? Or is it just a possibility?

I'm sure there are tons of other websites out there than can give you some better insight. I personally don't know anything about it, but this link seems to be informative.
