Fuchs dystrophy

Fuchs' dystrophy is a corneal dystrophy type characterized by reducing the number of cells forming the inner layer of the cornea, called endothelial cells. Its function is to maintain good transparency in the same and process water that forms the structure of the cornea. Therefore, when they are reduced, water is not processed properly and, by accumulating fluid, corneal tissue becomes thicker and causes it to lose its crystalline transparency. Therefore, the vision is blurred and other problems can occur, such as scarring of the cornea. If this happens, it is necessary to perform a corneal transplant, whereby cornea affected is replaced by a healthy endothelium from a donor.
