A bilateral disorder of the cornea characterized by intermittent attacks of ocular irritation, recurrent painful corneal erosions starting in childhood, corneal opacities in a geographic pattern at the level of the Bowman layer, and a progressive decrease of visual acuity. The lesions are primarily in Bowman membrane with secondary involvement of the epithelium and superficial part of the stroma. Bowman membrane is almost completely replaced by pathologic materials including disoriented collagen fibrils.
