Corneal guttata is sign of endothelial cell dysfunction. The guttata themselves have no symptoms. If there are many, it is an indication that the endothelial cells are not functioning properly and can lead to corneal edema. The vision will fluctuate, typically worse in the morning upon waking up and improve throughout the day. You can also get halos around lights and glare symptoms.

Treatment is with eye drops initially, then surgically if needed -- either full thickness or partial thickness corneal transplants. These transplants are very successful.
