Ectopia lentis, also known as crystalline lens subluxation, is an inherited disorder that causes lens displacement in both eyes. The lens is the transparent structure inside the eye that focuses light rays onto the retina. This condition is a primary feature of Marfan syndrome.
Currently, the NEI does not have a fact sheet on this condition.
