Blurred vision: Hitting the bull's eye

Published:October 13, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejim.2022.10.005
      An 18-year-old female presented with progressive blurred vision in both eyes. On evaluation, her uncorrected visual acuity was 20/400 in both eyes. Slit lamp examination revealed bilateral supero-temporal dislocated lens splitting the pupillary axis with visible stretched zonules (Fig. 1). Intraocular pressure and posterior segment evaluation were normal. Systemic examination revealed a late systolic murmur at the apex.
