  • Preoperative workup Cataract often develops at a younger age in patients with colobomatous lenses. The extent of the ocular structures affected by the coloboma should be determined preoperatively.[healio.com]
  • The diagnosis of coloboma by an ophthalmologist should prompt a careful systemic workup and family history. Support provided by the Eye Tumor Research Foundation, Philadelphia, PA (CLS). The authors have no financial interests to disclose.[retinatoday.com]

  • Prognosis The prognosis for vision depended on the phenotype of the better eye  Microphthalmos with cyst has the worst prognosis  Coloboma with microcornea and microphthalmos a poor prognosis  Coloboma with only microcornea has an intermediate prognosis[slideshare.net]
  • Prognosis [ 9 ] The prognosis for vision depends on the severity and location of the coloboma (particularly in relation to the optic nerve, macula and maculopapular bundle) and on any complications such as retinal detachment or amblyopia.[patient.info]
  • Hornby et al 7 have shown that microphthalmos with cyst had the worst prognosis, coloboma with microcornea and microphtalmos had a poor prognosis, coloboma with microcornea had an intermediate prognosis, and simple coloboma had the best prognosis.[nature.com]
  • The prognosis of visual recovery in cases where visual disability has occurred will depend upon the time of detection (better prognosis inside the sensitive period) and the willingness of the patient to attempt rehabilitation.[journalofoptometry.org]


  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]

  • They are organised into groups, and further divided into clinical, etiological or histopathological sub-types.[orpha.net]
  • The etiology of this troubling problem is the anatomic anomaly. The iris sphincter tissue is connected to the iris base and chamber angle in the colobomatous eye.[crstoday.com]
  • This can be done by both etiology and extent. By etiology, iris defects are divided into congenital and acquired types. In typical practice, acquired aniridia is more common than congenital aniridia.[eyeworld.org]


  • Vision can be improved with glasses, contact lenses or even laser eye surgery but may be limited if the retina is affected or there is amblyopia. [5] Epidemiology [ edit ] The number of cases is around 0.5 to 0.7 per 10,000 births, making it a relatively[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Epidemiology [ 1 ] The estimated incidence of coloboma is about 1 in 10,000 births. Coloboma is estimated to account for 3-11% of blindness in children worldwide. Aetiology [ 2 ] The eye develops in the embryo, from the optic cup and optic fissure.[patient.info]
  • Epidemiology Incidence is 5 per 1,00,000 newborns Prevalence is 1 in 10,000 60% are bilateral Molecular genetics  deletion in gene which maps to chromosome 7q26.  a mutation in the PAX6 g  # Warburg M J Med Genet. 1993 Aug;30(8):664-9 4.[slideshare.net]

  • Pathophysiology In the normal eye, optic fissure closes 33 to 40 days after conception.[slideshare.net]


  • Therefore, reverse pupillary block was prevented, a flat iris configuration was maintained, and there was no iridozonular contact.[jamanetwork.com]
  • Early detection and treatment could prevent vision loss. See an eye care professional right away if you have a sudden change in vision, if everything looks dim, or if you see flashes of light.[icdlist.com]
