Abstract

Eight families with lattice corneal dystrophy arc reported. The symptoms and signs arc almost identical with the typical lattice corneal dystrophy type 1 in western countries. Lattice corneal dystrophy has been considered to be a rare disease until recently, but it might be a more common disorder. This is the first report of a large series of lattice corneal dystrophy in Japan.
