Hi doctor,

My son has a genetic problem. Many doctors that we consulted say that he does not have irises in his eyes. He is only 14 months old. Is there any treatment? I also face the same problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I think he has aniridia. I am sorry, but there is no permanent cure for this.
  • But yes, you can try cosmetic contact lens, which will decrease photophobia. If his retina is fine, then this will help him.

Regards.
