A. Had a couple of types, the anterior and posterior type. The anterior type is where you have the central corneal shows these polygonal pattern of grayish white opacities separated by bowman’s and the epithelium. The posterior type looks like it’s in the deep stroma and descemets region. Really its not causing any functional problem. The treatment and management is none.
B. Is a yellowish/white cholesterol rings in the peripheral cornea, lipids at the termination of Bowman’s. You’re going to be noticing this sort of whitish rings, some of them are very subtle and some of them very dense going around the cornea
C. Leads to a differential diagnoses of corneal guttata. When you have corneal guttata, it affects the endothelium,. So now when you have farinata, you have these grayish white flecks in the deep corneal stroma.
D. Could be from mechanical injury like forceps injury at birth, or could it be from increased IOP called congential glaucoma If the pressure is so high its pushing on the endothelium, so it’s going to cause problems to the endothelium and descemet’s
