Weekend Bytes - Ectopia Lentis



It is the dislocation or displacement of the natural crystalline lens.


The lens is defined as luxated (dislocated) when it lies completely outside of the hyaloid fossa, is free-floating in the vitreous, is in the anterior chamber, or lies directly on the retina.


The lens is considered subluxed when it is partially displaced but remains within the lens space.


Look above for the D/D's!
