Corneal guttata are spots where endothelial cells have died. The endothelium is the innermost layer of cells on the cornea. Guttata are common as we age. The number and density of corneal gutatta can indicate endothelial cell problems. Guttata with an unusually thick cornea indicates more serious problems. The endothelium is not normally disturbed by Lasik and similar laser eye surgery.

You may ask your Lasik doctor to refer you to a corneal specialist for a more detailed evaluation of your gutatta.
