: Does anybody have any information on an eye condition called "fuchs"? I'm searching on behalf of a relative.

Yes. I have the condition. However, there is not much info available since it is so rare. It is a genetic disorder of the eye and is called "Fuchs Dystrophy". Try an internet web search because I do believe their is a site in europe on thesubject. The disease is the degeneration of the epithelial (sp?) cells of the cornea of the eye. The only cure is a cornea transplant. Feel free to contact me either at the E-mail or at my mailing address of: F. Saleh , B0X 27671, Lakewood, CO 80227. I have never met anyone with the disease other than my deceased sister.
