Corneal dystrophies

Corneal dystrophies are a group of conditions that are genetic in origin and cause the normal metabolism of the cornea to not operate normally. These may or may not cause symptoms (asymptomatic). Some are progressive in nature and may produce both visual issues and discomfort.

Some corneal dystrophies cause discomfort due to recurrent erosions of the front surface of the cornea. Soft or scleral lenses may be used effectively to reduce pain and protect the surface of the cornea.
