What is Schnyder’s Crystalline Dystrophy? What is the treatment for Schnyder’s Crystalline Dystrophy?

 

Schnyder’s crystalline dystrophy is an inherited condition (autosomal dominant) that causes corneal opacities. This condition is associated with high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia.) These opacities often cause glare and in severe cases can cause a decrease in one’s vision. Treatment includes controlling one’s cholesterol and PTK (phototherapeutic keratectomy.)
