Summary

Excerpted from the GeneReview: Congenital Stromal Corneal Dystrophy
Congenital stromal corneal dystrophy is characterized by the presence of bilateral corneal opacities that can be seen at or shortly after birth. The surface of the cornea is normal or slightly irregular; small opacities seen throughout the stroma of the entire cornea give the cornea a cloudy appearance. Strabismus is common. Nystagmus is uncommon. Most individuals undergo penetrating keratoplasty in late adolescence or early adulthood with good results.
