After consulting with many corneal experts, the conclusion was that Patrick?now blind in one eye?needed a corneal transplant. Corneal transplants involve cutting the cornea out of the eye and replacing it with a donor cornea. The surgery involves dozens of stitches?30 for Patrick who received his transplant in July 2003. Also, optical stitch removal is tedious; can take many visits; and can only be done a few at a time, when the stitch loosens, and with a needle-like instrument while the patient is conscious. Patrick paid $18,000 dollars for the transplant and additional $4,000 for a follow-up lens implant in 2005. Patrick?s doctors expect that Patrick will have to undergo many other future procedures and warn that his cornea can reject at any time. Patrick has lost nearly two years of income, his entire savings, and his position as a street officer; he will never be able to work in the same capacity due to his vision problems.
