This is about my 2 month old son,we have visited a Top institute in ophthalmology in India,there after lot of test done and Doctors concluded that my wife was infected with TORCHES +ve during her pregnancy and was not diagonosed (otherwise treated in the early stage of preg. aborted if diagonosed in the later stage),now my son born with a corneal edema in his both the eyes,he has got a blurred vision,he always keeps hi eyes closed. Doctors have suggested hypertonic drops,if it will not work then the final option is corneal transplant.
My question is since my child is of just two months old,are there chance of improvement with hypertonic drops,if yes then how many days or month it will take the change to be visible. and how this corneal transplant been done,is my childs age suitable for it and what will be the expenses.

Thanks
