Hello Joy:

After reading your posts, I researched Dr. Tseng and contacted him for more information regarding my dry eyes as well as a pingueculae on both eyes which are also a contributing factor to my problem. I have an appointment with him scheduled for early November, and a tentative surgery set during the same trip, if warranted by the evaluation.

My question to you is regarding your post-surgical results. Although I have read through the forum that those results were very good, if you could provide greater insight on the following, I would greatly appreciate it:

1. Previously, I had surgery using the AMT (amniotic transplantation method) on the site where I had a elastoid degeneration (ping) removed. Although the growth is gone, there is some discoloration at the site where I had the surgery. From what I've read, you also had the same type of surgery for conjunctivochalsis, and would greatly appreciate if you would give more details on the results from that surgery from a cosmetic point of view. In other words, when you say the white of your eyes are now clear, are you stating that the conjunctiva tissue itself is white, similiar to what a normal, non-dry eye, non-irritated eye looks like?

2. Any visible scarring and or appearance of the eye looking like it was surgically altered? The area where I had the excision with the AMT, does look a bit altered, but hopefully that will improve over time. My only concern is that if I have the same type of surgery to remove the other areas where the pings have formed, that the whole eye will look similiar to that same area in question.

Thanks so much for not only giving me greater insight to this eye issue, but more importantly for sharing your positive experiences with Dr. Tseng. From my correspondences with him thus far, as well as a phone conversation, I am incredibly optimistic about the outcome. He is not only a brillant doctor, but it quite apparent that he is a compassionate individual. Any questions that I've sent him by email have always been responded with a sense of urgency on his part.

Thanks,
Susan
