In brief: No
Anything causing a deposit anywhere on the cornea is termed an opacity - most due to a specific injury such as a foreign body or ulcer of the cornea after healing.
Corneal dystrophy is more generalized throughout the cornea affecting one or another layer, some inherited and others like the condition fuch's, which is acquired. See your corneal specialist ophthalmologist to sort this out.
