Corneal dystrophies have been described and assigned various names in different regions at different times in history. A group of skilled cornea experts from four continents, the International Committee for Classification of Corneal Dystrophies (IC3D), reviewed the literature, agreed on common signs and symptoms, and presented a new classification system. As more corneal dystrophies become genetically characterized, this element has also been included in the system. The structure of the IC3D classification system will be discussed.
