Avellino corneal dystrophy has rarely been reported in literature. It consists of a combination of granular and lattice dystrophy. Patients may complain of glare and decreased night vision with or without decreased visual acuity, depending on the degree of corneal involvement. Current treatment for this dystrophy includes bandage contact lenses for the erosions or corneal transplant in the case of decreased visual acuity. We describe the first patient with Avellino corneal dystrophy to have been treated with phototherapeutic keratectomy.
