A slowly progressive disease of the anterior basement membrane that leads to scarring, pain, and photophobia. There are subepithelial corneal opacities with a clear limbal zone, and a honeycomb-shaped opacity pattern, Previously this form of corneal dystrophy has erroneously been classified as Reis-Bücklers' dystrophy. The clinical symptoms hardly differ from those of Reis-Bücklers' dystrophy, but the histological appearance is clearly distinct.
