Adamtsl4-related eye disorders
Is there a treatment(s) for ADAMTSL4-related eye disorders?
Treatment for ADAMTSL4-related eye disorders depends on the symptoms the person is having. In children, the main goal of treatment is to prevent amblyopia (or "lazy eye"), where the brain favors one eye over the other. This can be done by giving the child glasses or by putting a patch over the "stronger" eye to help the "lazy" eye work better. Surgeries can be performed if there are problems with the lens, iris (colored part of the eye), or retina (part of the eye that sends signals to the brain). If there is high pressure in the eye, medicine can be given to lower it.
