Holes in my Cornea

I was diagnosed with lazy eye at a young age, and I have been wearing contacts for about 7 years now. My right eye is much worse in vision than my left. I went to the optometrist today to get more contacts, and they used a new camera to take pictures of my cornea. Apparently, I have "guttata" on my right eye, which are basically a bunch of holes. I am only 21, so my optometrist was concerned, and prescribed me some drops.

I have a few questions that I haven't gotten answers for yet:
How serious are guttata on your cornea?
Are the drops supposed to fix this problem, or slow it down?
Is it possible that I was misdiagnosed with lazy eye and have actually had guttata my whole life?
Am I going to have to stop wearing contacts? (I hate glasses!!)

Basically I don't know anything about this condition and my optometrist won't say much until my follow up appointment in a month.
