  • I have Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome.  My symptoms include dislocated pupils and very high astigmatism with a detaching lens. I recently learned that a flattened mid-face, missing teeth, and mid section anomalies are also symptoms of this disorder.  I would like to start a family; however I would first like to learn more about the chances of passing this on to my future children and the likelihood that their condition would be more serious than my own.  Also, the lens in one of my eyes is detaching and migrating away from my displaced pupil.  Is this a common effect of the disease? Can it be treated?
