Visiting Your Doctor booklet covers all of the tests a corneal specialist might perform on your cornea & eye. It explains each test procedure, what the typical results are and what they mean. Great primer to act really smart with your doc! There's also a section on questions you may wish to ask during an initial specialist's interview. There's also a very nice chart in the back of Visiting that you can use to track your test results from each visit.
Journeys with Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy booklet has nine personal stories covering everything from Full Corneal Transplant (PK), through the DSAEK partial transplant and also DMEK, the latest, most thin, partial transplant. There's 36 pages between the covers with not only stories, but a simple glossary BEFORE the stories so you can understand the acronyms within the stories.
