Hi Glenn,
Welcom back. I hope you feel better.
I have a question regarding what condition can be really seen by looking at eyes.
Can Doctor see any of following conditions by looking at eyes? Or do they need some special device to see these condtion?
1. DLK
2. microstriae
3. epithelium ingrowth
4. corneal haze
5. irregular cornea
6. corneal scar

I am gonig back to see doctor tomorrow to ask about my blurry eyes.
So I am trying to prepare before I go.

Thank you in advance.

All can be observed by the doctor with common tools just about every eye physician would have. Some can be observed and quantified better with addtional diagnostic devices, but if they are there your doctor should be able to know.

Also, if you had DLK, striae, corneal haze, corneal scar, or irregular cornea, you would probably know it because of vision degradation. You would probably know about epithelial ingrowth too, but not until later stages.
