Megan is suffering from keratoconus -- a condition in which the clear tissue on the front of the eye bulges outward -- and has come to The Doctors in hopes of finding out if her eyesight can be saved. After seeing another Doctors guest suffering from keratoconus, she was inspired to reach out. She tells us her insurance does not cover the required procedure she needs to correct her vision.
After being diagnosed with keratoconus, she was given glasses but she says this did not solve the issue and tells us, "It's like looking through a kaleidoscope."
She says her vision has continued to decline and in the last 7 months has become much worse. She says she is close to being blind in her right eye.
"I'm scared to go blind. I'm scared to not see my daughter grow up," she says.
We send her to see eye surgeon Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler to determine if there is any hope of saving her vision.
Megan delayed seeking treatment for her eyesight issue and Dr. Boxer Wachler says waiting has contributed to the seriousness of her issue. He explains that she needs multiple procedures to correct and treat her vision. He surprises Megan, telling, "I'm going to do these procedures for you...we're going to take care of everything for you. It's going to be okay."
