Treatment for lattice corneal dystrophy type 1 (LCD1) depends on the disease severity and the associated symptoms. Patching and soft contact lenses may be recommended for episodes of corneal erosion. Corneal transplant (i.e., penetrating keratoplasty) or phototherapeutic keratectomy may be an option for individuals with recurrent erosions and/or vision loss.
