Full Text



An 18-year-old-female, a known case of Marfan syndrome, was referred to us for routine eye evaluation. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/40 in both eyes. Her retinoscopic findings were −6.75DS/−3.50DC × 5° in the right eye and −8.0DS/−1.50DC × 5° in the left eye. On biomicroscopic examination, her corneas were clear. There was presence of indentation or concavity of lens periphery inferiorly in both eyes extending approximately 2 clock hours in the right eye [Figure 1]a and 1 clock hours in the left eye [Figure 1]b, suggestive of bilateral inferior lens coloboma.[1] Fundus was normal. Lens colobomas are congenital lens anomaly, rarely seen with Marfan syndrome. They are usually managed conservatively.{Figure 1}
