Visual Function and Corneal Health Status in Fuchs Dystrophy II


About this study

The purpose of this study is to compare patient-reported visual disability before and after endothelial keratoplasty in patients with Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy by comparing scores of the previously designed and validated Visual Function and Corneal Health Status (V-FUCHS) questionnaire. Patient-reported disability will be related to the optical properties of the cornea measured by non-contact imaging methods.
