Fuchs' (fooks) dystrophy affects the cornea — the clear front window of your eye. This disorder causes swelling in the cornea that can lead to glare, cloudy vision and eye discomfort.
Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy is a genetic, dominant disease. That means you got it from a parent. With this kind of gene each child born from a parent carrying the disease has a 50% chance of getting Fuchs' Dystrophy.
