Clinical Outcomes of surgical management of Subluxated Lenses in Children.
Ectopia lentis is the displacement of natural lens of the eye. It can occur after trauma or could be a sign of serious systemic disease. In children, developmental or hereditary systemic conditions like Marfan syndrome, homocystinuria, Ehlers- Danlos syndrome, most commonly and hyperglycaemia, sulphite oxidase deficiency, simple primary ectopia lentis and congenital aniridia syndrome less commonly among others, cause lens subluxation. When lens is displaced anteriorly it results in narrowing of the anterior chamber angle and pupillary block leading to either acute or chronic angle closure glaucoma. Posterior dislocation of the lens can lead to vitreous traction on the retina causing retinal detachment or with leaking lens proteins into the vitreous cavity can cause chronic vitritis and chorioretinal inflammation.Author(s): Dr. Darakshanda Khurram
