Once corneal dystrophy has been diagnosed, what can be done to slow the onset of the disease?

Due to the fact that the disease is genetic and environmental influences and dietary factors do not have any affect on it, nothing can be done to stop it from progressing or make it progress more slowly. No indicators have been identified to reveal the prognosis of each patient, that is to say, there's no way of knowing in advance which patients will progress more quickly or slowly or who will need surgical treatment.
