Posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD) is a dominantly inherited disorder of the neural crest-derived corneal endothelium that is associated with characteristic corneal endothelial morphologic abnormalities. The vast majority of patients have stable disease and are asymptomatic. However, in certain patients, corneal edema may develop as a result of endothelial dysfunction. In general, PPCD is a bilateral disease but is asymmetric in some patients. A few case reports on patients with unilateral PPCD with asymmetric refractive error have mentioned anisometropic amblyopia development. Here, we report 3 cases of unilateral PPCD that presented with astigmatic anisometropia. All patients had at least 1.5 diopters (D) cylindrical refractive error difference between their eyes
