BASEMENT MEMBRANE DYSTROPHY (EBMD)

What is it?
An irregularity of the front layer of corneal cells. This corneal dystrophy can lead to dryness and other symptoms or complications. In severe cases losses of vision, infection or painful recurrent abrasions can occur.

Who Does it Affect?
Often an inherited condition in men and women, yet it is more commonly seen in women and with age.   

How is it Treated?
There is no cure for EBMD, however lubricant, anti-inflammatory and other eye drops may help the symptoms associated with the condition. Some people require no treatment other than observation by their eye doctor. For more severe cases that include recurrent corneal erosions, surgery or laser treatment may be necessary.
