Abstract

• A previously undescribed syndrome of bilateral blepharoptosis, ectopia lentis, and high myopia apparently was dominantly inherited and originated from a spontaneous genetic mutation. The syndrome seems to be caused by a decrease in the tensile strength of the levator aponeurosis, the zonules, and the sclera.
