Anterior lens luxation 👁

Lens luxation and subluxation can be congenital or acquired. Acquired lens luxation results from glaucoma and buphthalmos, trauma, or chronic uveitis. Once luxated, the lens can be displaced anteriorly or posteriorly. A posteriorly luxated lens results in liquefaction of the vitreous from lens movement. Anterior lens luxation can cause anterior uveitis and trauma to the corneal endothelium, resulting in diffuse corneal edema, obstruction of aqueous humor circulation, and secondary glaucoma. Treatment of anterior lens luxation in a potentially visual eye involves surgical removal of the luxated lens. In a blind, painful eye, enucleation is warranted. It is possible for an anteriorly luxated lens to be repositioned into the posterior segment with digital pressure; however, complications such as retinal detachment and vitreal prolapse resulting in secondary glaucoma can occur.
