lens luxation

Lens Luxation

The lens is held in place behind the iris and the pupil by tiny strands called zonules. Disruption of the zonules can cause the lens to move out of its normal position. This is called luxation. When a lens is only partially held by some zonules, it is referred to as a subluxated lens. When a lens is no longer held by any zonules, it is called a luxated lens. Primary lens luxation can be inherited. The zonules are defect and weaken and break with time. Secondary lens luxation is just that is a secondary problem associated with another (primary) eye problem. Trauma to the eye or head can also cause lens luxation.
