Abstract

The case discusses the low vision assessment and management given appropriate for the 18-year-old male student with congenital aniridia and associated cataract and high myopia. Congenital aniridia is a rare, usually bilateral, panocular condition that mainly affects the iris and other ocular structures, leading to secondary conditions like keratopathy, cataract, lens subluxation, glaucoma, and foveal or optic nerve hypoplasia. Due to the abnormal development in the primary structures involving the visual function, individuals with aniridia become visually impaired. As no treatment exists for aniridia, management was directed on the associated condition/s and symptoms present to improve the patient’s quality of life.
