The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) provides the following list of features that have been reported in people with this condition. Much of the information in the HPO comes from Orphanet, a European rare disease database. If available, the list includes a rough estimate of how common a feature is (its frequency). Frequencies are based on a specific study and may not be representative of all studies. You can use the MedlinePlus Medical Dictionary for definitions of the terms below.

I have lattice corneal dystrophy type 1 and have had light sensitivity and astigmatism for a number of years Over the past 18 months my vision has become much worse.

Since there are no other cases of corneal dystrophy in my family, yet this is a genetic disease, I'm additionally interested in finding out more about genetic testing. See answer
