Although there is no known cure for Fuchs’ dystrophy, corneal surgeons today can perform a partial corneal transplant called Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK), which removes the damaged endothelial cells and replaces them with healthy donor cells. The procedure has seen tremendous success and most patients that undergo DSAEK regain clear vision.

Symptoms of Fuchs’ Dystrophy include glare and sensitivity to light, foggy or blurred vision, eye pain, issues with seeing at night, poor morning vision that improves throughout the day.
