In this case report, a literature-guided comparative analysis of confocal microscopy and Scheimpflug camera findings of an adult with Avellino corneal dystrophy was performed. It was observed that along with the confocal microscopy, which is a commonly used procedure in corneal dystrophies, the rarely used Scheimpflug camera may provide additional data, especially about the degree of corneal spread, that can be helpful in diagnosis and follow-up.
