I've had calcium build up in my cornea for years.
My eye has that washed out look you mention.
But since my blind eye was too ill with glaucoma, the calcium build up had never given me any trouble.
I have what they call a band keratopathy,"a condition of the front surface of the cornea in which calcium was being deposited in the tissue injured by the poor blood supply to the eye".
Now I am in pain, and the pain is due to the calcium flakes breaking loose.
I will travel to Miami next monday to get the calcium removed with a chemical scrub called EDTA at the BPEI. My doc says it's not that painful and that my eye will heal in a couple of days.
I have no idea what it will be like and I am a little bit nervous...
But be sure that I will tell you all about it as soon as I have the procedure done.
Hugs from the mexican caribbean...
