Hi,

I have been going through a lot of medical issues and a lot of tests. My eyes were looked at briefly by one of my doctors. Some of there testing that I am still waiting on is looking for Wilson's.

To me they don't look like it but, I really have no idea.

Any insight?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

Patients with Wilson disease has brown like ring at the peripheral part of the cornea that is called kayser fleischer rings and it seems you don't have it but Wilson disease is diagnosed by specific blood tests not by the presence or absence of kayser fleischer ring.

This ring can help to monitor the treatment of the disease.
