We present a 53-year-old man with bilateral lens subluxation, unilateral iridoschisis, and a long-standing history of periocular eczema. Although a case of unilateral lens subluxation and ipsilateral iridoschisis has been described recently, the pathogenesis of this simultaneous occurrence remains unclear. Our case raises questions about the relationship among these clinical observations and suggests that these findings may exist as part of an unrecognized oculodermal syndrome.
