A case of Schnyder’s corneal dystrophy
The present case has been reported in the Digital Journal of Ophthalmology.

A 62-year-old African American woman presented for evaluation of a gradual decrease in vision. She described symptoms of glare as well as a graying of her eyes. She reported that several of her relatives had a similar condition.

On examination, visual acuity was 20/30 in both eyes, decreasing to 20/60 with brightness acuity testing. Slit-lamp examination revealed bilateral central stromal opacification, with subepithelial crystalline deposits, a midperipheral clear zone, and 360° of arcus lipoides, consistent with Schnyder’s corneal dystrophy.

Ultrasonography was unremarkable. Workup revealed hyperlipidemia, and a statin was started. Observation was elected.
