Do You Take Insurance? I had DMEK surgery on both

Do You Take Insurance?
I had DMEK surgery on both eyes. The 2nd eye (my left eye) was done in August, and did not go smoothly. The incision to insert the tissue was an entire quadrant unlike the first surgery, and had to be re-bubbled after 2 weeks. I have monocular double vision in that eye, with the main image being about 80% dense, with the second image below and a little to my right at about 20% density. This is driving me crazy. It's one thing to see a second image when reading text or when only 2 colors are in view, but looking at detailed images like faces at a distance is unsatisfactory, with details all out of wack. Either the cornea was slightly stretched or misaligned when it was stitched or the endothelial and descemet membrane is coming off. What tests can be done to determine what the problem is. I have good insurance that costs about $8,000.00 a year for single individual . Do you take insurance?

Hello, I had a question in regards to the possibility of my medical insurance covering dental implants. I m 38 years ols and at one time, I had beautiful teeth. i take care of my teeth as best as i can but have lost several teeth. When i was a teenager and i was in a car accident and had to have three teeth crowned and my front tooth was chipped so he repaired it as well. Many years later, i decided to have weight loss surgery, well i have lost 170 lbs but in the process lost teeth from continuasly vomiting. So now, either my teeth are gone or truly should be replaced. I m so fearful of losing anymore teeth. I used to have a beautiful smile and now i fear being in public and smiling. Do You know if medical would ever assist in this matter?

Dear Docter, Polio attcked my fiancee in her childhood, due to which one of her leg is smaller and little shorter than the other and she can not walk properly. She is loosing her self confidence. We are considering to go for a surgery to improve her mobility. She is 27 years old. Here are my questions. 1. How long will it take for the surgery and how long is the post surgery recovery period? What would be the approximate cost? I know it depends on the complexity of the surgery and other factors, but I am looking for approximation. 2. Can you please give me the list of best hospitals/Doctors in India, who are experts in such complex surgeries? 3. Does insurance cover the cost of surgery? Appreciate the detailed information. Thanks
