I wonder...if diet can affect corneal edema in "fuchies." (aka: people who have Fuchs.) Or, at least for me because I'm also a Celiac (aka: someone who's allergic to wheat gluten) and tend to retain water everywhere when I eat wheat. So, maybe it makes my even my Fuchs symptoms worse when I cheat and eat wheat...as I did yesterday. You see, I'm having a bad vision day today and yesterday I ate not just wheat gluten, but also salty foods...leading to water retention. It does make logical sense and would explain why some days I wake up with very little corneal swelling and very little watery eyes and other days I awaken to a very hazy house and very watery eyes. Hmmmmmmmm. I wonder...

I called my eye doctor last week to make sure they had sent the files to the corneal specialist, and let them know that I still haven't heard from him. They ended up calling him and he does have the questions I emailed to him. They are at his house and he's supposed to call me.
