Recurrent corneal edema suggests there is some other pathology 1. Ask for specular microscopy for endothelial cell count If count is OK then consult cornea specialist

Corneal edema persisting for so long period make us suspicious of some more serious happening in the eye. Show to cornea specialist immediately.
