Abstract

In this article, Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy is discussed. The symptoms and early treatment are analysed, as well as the hereditary nature of the disease. Surgical approach is thoroughly analysed and the advantages and disadvantages of a potential combined procedure (partial keratoplasty and cataract surgery) are discussed.
