What is fuchs dystrophy?

Fuchs dystrophy (or Fuchs corneal endothelial dystrophy) is an inherited eye condition, which may cause your cornea to become cloudy. Your cornea is the clear front 'window' of your eye. Fuchs dystrophy affects the innermost layer of your cornea. It can cause you to become sensitive to light and for your sight to become cloudy. It can develop slowly and can affect your vision to a varying degree. 

If you have fuchs dystrophy a corneal transplant can normally make your sight clear again.
