Corneal dystrophy is a condition in which one or more parts of the cornea lose their normal clarity due to a buildup of cloudy material. Most cases of corneal dystrophy are of three types, classified by their inheritance pattern: dominant granular dystrophies, recessive macular dystrophy and dominant lattice-like dystrophies. Corneal dystrophies are associated with corneal epithelium, Bowman’s layer, corneal stroma and corneal endothelium. Corneal dystrophies may be present at birth, but more frequently occur during adolescence.
