Weak lens zonules
are associated with which of the following conditions?
UBM performed in our patient did not reveal any significant echogenicity belonging to zonules
at the defective site.
All outpatients presenting for care at the glaucoma specialty clinic at Beijing Tongren Eye Center, Beijing from May 2006 to April 2007 were evaluated for signs of PDS: corneal endothelial pigmentation, anterior iris stromal pigment dusting, ITDs, posterior iris bowing, increased TM pigmentation, and pigment granule dusting on lens zonules
or peripheral posterior surface.
They are located within the anterior sclera and provide both protection for the globe and an attachment site for the lens zonules
, which function to change the shape of the lens during focusing.
Without adequate B6 at the right lime, remodeling the pigmentary layer of the iris is accomplished with surrogate proteins, which are vulnerable to flaking off with athletic bouncing and with unfortunate engagement with the zonules
. Using the supplemental protein cannot be recommended without simultaneous availability of B complex and especially B6.
Ectopia lentis, a common manifestation of homocystinuria and Marfan syndrome, can be due to subluxation (lens zonules
are still in place) or dislocation (no zonules
With pigment dispersion glaucoma, the lens zonules
rub against the posterior surface of the iris and release pigment that may clog the trabecular meshwork and increase intraocular pressure.
(1995): Biohorizons and zonules
: Intra-subzonal units in Jurassic ammonite stratigraphy.
a) Iris pigment is released due to friction between lens zonules
and peripheral iris
In pseudoexfoliation syndrome, the lens zonules
are more fragile and have diminished elasticity, and spontaneous intraocular lens dislocation may occur due to capsular fibrosis.
The actual dislocation event typically occurs later in life as zonules
