Fuchs’ Dystrophy

Woman Treated for Fuchs' Dystrophy smiling

What is Fuchs’ Dystrophy?

Fuchs’ dystrophy is a degenerative condition of the cornea that affects the endothelium, or inner-most layer, of the cornea. Over time, this layer starts to deteriorate. Once lost, these cells cannot regrow.

Who is Most Often Affected by Fuchs’ Dystrophy?

Women are more likely than men to develop Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy, and most develop it in their 30s or 40s.

What are the Symptoms of Fuchs’ Dystrophy?

Symptoms of Fuchs’ dystrophy may include blurry vision in the morning, which sharpens as the day goes on. In severe cases where vision is lost, a corneal transplant may be the only treatment option.
