Fuch’s Dystrophy

Fuchs’ dystrophy is an uncommon disorder that affects the cornea. Fuchs dystrophy is a type of corneal dystrophy, which is a group of conditions which can cause swelling of the cornea. Usually, the cells that line the back surface of the cornea, known as the endothelial layer,  prevent excess fluid from accumulating and this helps the cornea maintain transparency. With Fuchs’ dystrophy, the endothelial cells deteriorate, lose function, and die. This creates the build up in the cornea and it causes swelling, cloudy vision, pain, and loss of corneal transparency. We offer the latest in treatment options for Fuchs, including DSAEK . Call an ophthalmologist at Anderson and Shapiro Eye Care for the best treatments available.
