Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes are a rare group of inherited connective tissue disorders of defective collagen synthesis. They predominantly involve the skin, joints and vessels. Ocular involvement in the form of blue sclera, microcornea and susceptibility to trauma is a common feature of EDS type VI. A minor ocular trauma in these patients can cause globe rupture. We herein report simple and successful management of a case of traumatic subconjunctival dislocation of lens in a patient of EDS type VI.
