Standard treatment of corneal erosions in the course of corneal dystrophy including lubrication, corneal deposits or scars removal with lamellar or penetrating keratoplasty as well as laser techniques were analysed. Development of new surgical laser techniques in recent ophthalmic surgery have extended the possibilities of healing patients with corneal diseases.
