What are the long term effects of microcoria and how might microcoria be treated?

We were unable to find information in the medical literature regarding the long term effects of microcoria or its management. We encourage you to speak with a healthcare provider experienced in the management of rare eye disorders. The American Association of Eye and Ear Hospitals provides a list of member clinics and the Eye Research Network provides a list of eye research facilities that may be helpful as you search for clinics. Click on the links to view the lists. Please note that the lists are not exhaustive of all specialty and research eye clinics within the United States or abroad.

In addition, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, through the National Library of Medicine, developed ClinicalTrials.gov to provide patients, family members, and members of the public with current information on clinical research studies. While there are no current studies involving microcoria, some studies about suspected genetic eye diseases have been completed.
