Our Mission: to increase the public's awareness of corneal dystrophy, a potentially blinding disease affecting the transparent front part of the eye.

Corneal Dystrophies are eye conditions in which the  cornea thickens and becomes cloudy, which causes blurring and distortion of vision.  Corneal Dystrophies often cause excruciating pain.

The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation provides support, information for corneal dystrophy patients. We do this through several channels in addition to this website:

  • The  Fuchs Friends online support group.                                    
  • The Cornea Transplant online support group
  • Facebook.
  • Twitter.
  • Local Support Group meetings.
  • Bi-annual Corneal Dystrophy Conferences for patients.
  • Free Literature.
  • Instructional DVDs
