Overview

Human corneal dystrophies is a group of disorders, characterised by a noninflammatory, inherited, bilateral opacity of the transparent front part of the human eye called the cornea. There is a number of rare forms varying in expression and degree of vision loss.[1]

The International Committee for Classification of Corneal Dystrophies (IC3D) was established in 2005 and created a new classification system employing the latest data of molecular biology an genetics.[2]
