|A 6-year-old girl presents for evaluation of amblyopia. The parents report that she was a term infant (40 week gestation) but “had a complicated delivery”. Neurologically, she is intact and she has met all of her developmental milestones. Her vision is 20/20 right eye and 20/100 left eye and her IOP is 18 mmHg in both eyes. The findings on slit lamp examination are shown above.|
|What is most correct about the patient’s findings and the cause of her amblyopia? |
||The patient has an obvious cataract and should be scheduled for surgery immediately.|
||The patient likely has unilateral glaucoma and should be started on glaucoma medicines immediately.|
||These corneal findings could be related to her delivery.|
||This patient has lattice dystrophy and her family members should be screened.|
