Disease relevance of Lens Subluxation

High impact information on Lens Subluxation

  • Mean induced postoperative myopia in eyes with lens dislocation was-2.25 diopters (D) +/- 0.55 (SD) [7].
  • The association between the two syndromes in this patient was most likely mechanical due to reduced fibrillin expression throughout the eye and particularly in the iris and the lens zonules, resulting in loss of iris tensile strength and marked iris concavity as well as zonular weakness and partial lens subluxation [8].
  • In a 3-week old female child with clinical features including neurologic abnormalities and lens dislocation, xanthinuria co-existed with increased excretion of sulfur compounds (sulfite, S-sulfocysteine, taurine and thio-sulfate) [9].
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty eyes of 16 patients (12 unilateral and 4 bilateral cases of "essential familial lens subluxation") aged 10-40 years (mean 25 years) underwent SS-PPL with implantation of scleral fixated IOL [10].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Congenital lens subluxation may be a difficult therapeutic problem [11].
