Your doctor will need to perform one or more exams to diagnose Fuchs' dystrophy. These may include a slit lamp and measurements of how thick your cornea is, known as pachymetry.
Diagnosis is usually easier in the earlier stages of the condition, when the cornea has sustained less damage but the changes in tissue are still visible.
You may find it helpful to journal your symptoms beforehand, so that you have as accurate a picture as possible of when they began occurring and in what situations they are most extreme.
