Children who are born with a condition affecting the surface of the cornea are prone to eye scratches or abrasions on the cornea. They might develop recurrent infections on the eye surface, which could leave them with a scar affecting their vision.
The early treatment and management is very effective and can stop any further deterioration in the vision or the condition. Sometimes it’s a condition that is dystrophy. For example, dystrophy will develop in a later stage in life and continue to progress. The management is to stop things from getting worse. However, eventually, the condition will progress because it’s one of those corneal dystrophies, which you can’t stop, unfortunately. Still, at least you can minimise any compromise of vision from that corneal dystrophy.
