Default Corneal degeneration and lipid spots

My 3 year old sheltie has been diagnosed with both. Has anybody
experienced this with their dog?

What are lipid spots? If it is pigmentation over the cornea, I may have
some insights because of a diagnosis of my dog's eye problem.

They are fat deposits on the cornea.

Well I don't thinks it's the same problem that my dog has, but here is a
link to a site that discusses canine eye problems and has several
specific references to "corneal lipid dystrophy" in Shelties:

Hope this helps.
