General Discussion
Aniridia is a rare genetic vision disorder characterized by abnormal development of the eye's iris. The iris is the circular colored membrane in the middle of the eyeball. It is perforated in the center by an opening known as the pupil, which regulates the amount of light that enters the eye. Aniridia is characterized by partial or complete absence of the iris. Various forms of aniridia have been identified. Each can be distinguished by accompanying symptoms.
