Fuchs’ Dystrophy Cause
There is no known cause of Fuchs’ dystrophy, but often the disorder is inherited and is more common in women. Most people with Fuchs’ dystrophy do not begin to notice changes in their vision until around the age of 50.
Fuchs’ Dystrophy Treatment
Fuchs’ dystrophy is generally treated with eye drops, ointments, or contact lenses to decrease the swelling in the cornea and provide relief from other symptoms. When the disease becomes advanced and these options can no longer clear the patient’s vision, the only way to restore vision is with cornea transplant surgery.
