Avellino Corneal Dystrophy is an uncommon, yet treatable, genetic eye condition. It occurs as a result of a faulty gene that causes the center of the cornea to become opaque, making it difficult for a person to see properly.
This condition has varying degrees of impact. Some people only experience mild discomfort and/or minor vision loss, while others find themselves completely unable to see properly from the affected eye. Other common symptoms include increased light sensitivity and recurrent discomfort or pain.
