Patients with Marfan syndrome may develop pupillary block glaucoma if the lens dislocates into the pupil or anterior chamber. Open-angle glaucoma may also occur. In addition, children with lens subluxation may develop amblyopia if their refractive error shows significant asymmetry or remains uncorrected in early childhood. A B Marfan syndrome.

Some cataracts may be subtotal at birth and progress rapidly to become complete cataracts. Complete cataracts may be unilateral or bilateral, and they produce profound visual impairment. Membranous Membranous cataracts occur when lens proteins are resorbed from either an intact or a traumatized lens, allowing the anterior and posterior lens capsules to fuse into a dense white membrane (Fig 3-14). The resulting opacity and lens distortion generally cause significant visual disability. • CHAPTER 3: Embryology and Developmental Defects • 35 • Figure 3-14 Membranous cataract.
