  • I have lattice corneal dystrophy and have had light sensitivity and astigmatism for a number of years. Over the past 18 months my vision has become much worse.  Is any current research going on that relates to lattice corneal dystrophy.  Also, have there been any recent articles published in medical journals about this disease? Since there are no other cases of corneal dystrophy in my family, yet this is a genetic disease, I'm interested in finding out more about genetic testing.   Click here for answer
