HKIE was contacted and we had him examined by Dr. Miotto at Exilaser. It has been determined he needs a cornea transplant. Dr. Miotto stated this will be a difficult surgery because his cornea is partially attached to the iris; but Dr. Miotto says he would still recommend the surgery.
Santiago has been placed on the government cornea list and we are hopeful he can have his surgery within the next few months. Both Santiago and his father are anxious and grateful to all.
