  • My daughter has the cataract-hyperferritnemia syndrome. She has a severe cataract and will soon undergo surgery. The doctor who discovered the syndrome has retired. He told us that except an eye surgery, no other treatment was needed as far as the hyperferritninemia is concerned. But I am wondering whether a risk of a gene mutation could happen leading to another iron disease. Moreover, neither my husband or me have that syndrome, is it normal?
