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.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers.

I was diagnosed with Fuch's dystrophy many years ago, but I think I may actually have lattice dystrophy. How can I find out for sure? See answer
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. 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 additionally interested in finding out more about genetic testing. See answer
