What is an Iris Coloboma? What is the treatment for an Iris Coloboma?

 

An iris coloboma is the incomplete closure of the iris during development as a fetus. This can occur in both eyes or just one eye. Typically the incomplete closure is on the bottom area of the iris. There are often other genetic diseases that are related to iris colobomas like: trisomy 18, trisomy 13, CHARGE syndrome, partial trisomy 22. One should be genetically screened. There are no surgical options available. Colored contact lenses can be used for cosmetics.
