Disease tells you a lot of what you don’t know and understand about a tissue.
This is an image of granular dystrophy in a 20 year old female and her mother, a 50 year old who suffers recurrent granular dystrophy in the transplant.

It is fascinating to think about the recurrence in healthy tissue.
Why would the same pattern happen in a tissue that has never suffered granular dystrophy???
It is a question that I, and no one else, can answer. If we could, it would unlock a lot of the dynamics of the eye.
