Peters plus syndrome
- Peters anomaly with short limb dwarfism
- Krause-Kivlin syndrome
- Congenital disorder of glycosylation with developmental anomaly
- Eye examination
- Growth hormone testing
- Developmental assessment
- Heart examination
- Kidney examination
- Head examination
- Thyroid testing
- Hearing assessment
Assessment by an ophthalmologist every three months or as indicated is recommended as well as regular developmental assessments. Preservation of vision in the affected eye(s) often requires surgery such as corneal transplantation (penetrating keratoplasty).
Certain medications, such as corticosteroids, should be avoided, as they increase the risk of glaucoma.
