About Corneal Dystrophy Foundation

The Corneal Dystrophy Foundation is a voluntary, non-profit organization whose mission is to increase public awareness of corneal dystrophies. They also aim to educate, support, and support those with corneal dystrophy, while encouraging research and development of new treatments. They do this by providing patient support groups, literature, webinars, and by hosting symposiums. Corneal dystrophies are a group of genetic, often progressive, eye disorders in which abnormal material often accumulates in the clear, outer layer of the eye (cornea). This can cause vision problems, severe pain, and light sensitivity.
